MUMBAI: Disney Channel is introducing a gay storyline into one of its shows for the first time. `Andi Mack’, a coming-of-age drama, will feature one of the show's main characters grappling with feelings for a male classmate.

The show, currently in its second season, is a drama by Terri Minsky revolving around a 13-year-old girl Andi, her family and her two best friends, Cyrus and Buffy, a PTI report from Los Angeles quoted The Hollywood Reporter.

"Andi Mack is a story about tweens figuring out who they are. Terri Minsky, the cast and everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it's appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity," the report quoted a Disney Channel spokesperson saying.

Disney Channel has featured gay characters before, appearing in single episodes of shows like `Good Luck Charlie’ and the animated `Doc McStuffins’.

However, this story arc is a first for the network, as it is for the first time that they are telling the story of a character who is on a journey of realising his or her sexual orientation.
