McTucky Fried High stands as one of the only openly LGBTQ animated series to date. While popular network cartoons like Steven Universe, Adventure Time, and The Legend of Korra can be progressive for LGBTQ media, they still face censorship that limits their discussion on sexuality and gender identity. McTucky Fried High is helping to lead the wave of animated media that affirms LGBTQ experiences. As a web cartoon, McTucky is accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Season 1 had 5 episodes that discussed coming out of the closet, bullying, body image, gender identity, and sexting. Season 2 of McTucky Fried High will have 7 episodes and will introduce new characters and topics like religion, feminism, race, STDs and intersectionality.
There will also be complimentary curriculums for each episode! The first season accumulated 36,000+ views on Youtube, was screened at numerous film festivals worldwide, and was recently dubbed in Japanese with a collaboration with students at Aoyama Gaukuin University in Tokyo, Japan.
