THE MOMMA BEARS' LETTER
Dear Mr Dan Levy, cast, crew, and writers of Schitt’s Creek. We belong to a large, private Facebook group called ‘Serendipity Doo-Dah for Moms, Home of the Momma Bears. We have more than 5000 moms in the group, and many of us are working to make the world a kinder, safer, more loving place for all LGBTQ people to live.
More than 1,800 of us are signing this letter because we wanted to say thank you for the LGBTQ characters, relationships and storylines that you have included in Schitt’s Creek. Your commitment to represent, love, and tolerance in your show is so important to families like ours. Your willingness to explore, inform, and educate about LGBTQ people and their relationships in an entertaining but respectful and positive manner sets a tone that is often missing.
You have created new ways for queer viewers to see themselves represented and in its own way, that is just as important as the battles we are still fighting. Therefore, the work you have all done on Schitt’s Creek has encouraged us greatly and given us hope about the future for our kids. We sincerely believe that shows like Schitt’s Creek will serve as a catalyst to help change the world into a kinder, safer, more loving place for all LGBTQ people to live, and because of that, we will remain forever grateful.
You’ve made a lot of momma bears happy, and as a result, you have a whole bunch of fans forever, with sincere gratitude and respect.
