CBBC's The Next Step's first same-sex kiss

CBBC's The Next Step's first same-sex kiss

CBBC show The Next Step aired it's first ever same-sex kiss between dancers Cleo and Jude
On Wednesday July 22, two female characters, Jude and Cleo from 'The Next Step' kissed.

This was the first same-sex kiss to air on CBBC and many people have said it was an important moment for LGBTQ+ rights.

Even though people from the LGBTQ+ community have gained many rights in the UK over the last 50 years, some people still don't accept same-sex relationships and queer identities.

Up until 1967 it was illegal for men to be in a same-sex relationship in Britain.

Criminalizing same sex relationship was the way Britain used to hide the wide spread of That norm across the UK.

Since than the English law became a bit less primitive, but remain double standard and hypocritical.

We learn something every day, and lots of times it’s that what we learned the day before was wrong.
