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.
