The moment shows a woman on a blind date getting excited when she sees a man arrive at the restaurant she i waiting in. It is then revealed that the man is meeting his boyfriend and the couple are seen kissing each other on the cheek.

Clarence writer Spencer Rothbell has revealed via Twitter that the couple originally kissed on the lips but the scene was changed in order to get approval from the channel.

“It’s such a minor throwaway moment but I guess it’s better than nothing," said Rothbell.

"Maybe one day the main character can be gay and it won’t be a big deal.”

The Disney Channel featured its first ever gay characters earlier this year when a lesbian couple appeared in its Good Luck Charlie.
