Mulan Is Bisexual On 'Once Upon A Time,' Disney-ABC Show

New ground was broken this week when a member of Disney's iconic Princess franchise was queered and it was revealed that Mulan is bisexual.

The hit Disney-ABC series "Once Upon A Time" functions under the premise that classic icons from various fairy tales have been transported to a "real world" town and have lost all memories of their former lives due to a powerful curse.

On this past Sunday's episode, Mulan quietly revealed her unrequited love for "Sleeping Beauty" princess Aurora in a heartbreaking scene that can be viewed above. During the show's previous season, Mulan also developed feelings for Prince Phillip.

The episode comes on the heels of a recent GLAAD study that shows the decline in depictions of LGBT characters on television over the past year.

However, while sparse, LGBT representation on television isn't nonexistent, with roles such as the transgender character Unique on "Glee," Sean Hayes' gay character on "Sean Saves The World," and Amber Tamblyn's lesbian character on "Two And A Half Men" forging new ground for LGBT representation.
