The depiction of LGBT characters in animated series 2005-2009 changed significantly from those aired from 2000 to 2004. In 2005, American Dad introduced a LGBTQ character as a protagonist: a space alien with an ambiguous sexuality named Roger.[1][2] The following year, an animated stand-up comedy web series, Lizzy the Lezzy, about a woman called Lizzy who talks mostly about lesbian interests, premiered.[3] The next year, Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple in All the World began airing on Logo TV and Teletoon, which featured many gay and lesbian characters. During this time period, LGBTQ characters also appeared in prominent shows like Family Guy, The Venture Bros., The Goode Family, The Cleveland Show, and South Park, along with in anime such as Paradise Kiss, Sweet Blue Flowers, Whispered Words, and Macross Frontier.
