In Steven Universe, same-sex relationships is a running theme, especially the relationship and marriage between Ruby and Sapphire (the two gems that forms Garnet), which was also the first same-sex marriage on mainstream children’s television.

Congratulations to Steven Universe’s Rebecca Sugar and the Crewniverse (Steven Universe’s production crew) for winning the award!
