You may know of the Disney Channel show Andi Mack, which is now on its third season.
Last night's episode focused on the passing of Cyrus Goodman's grandmother and it featured a shiva, a week-long Jewish mourning period.
As Cyrus Goodman tells Jonah Beck (played by Asher Angel) what each dish is, he uses the moment to casually come out: "That's gefilte fish and, skip that, I'm gay."
This makes him the Disney Channel's first gay character.
The clip was shared on Twitter thousands of times and people called the scene historic.
People found it to be a heartwarming watch.
And a lot of people spoke about how important representation is for young people.
In a tweet after the episode aired, the actor Joshua Rush who plays Cyrus Goodman called it a "milestone" said it was "a blessing" to work on the show.
