A new Netflix show for children that is hosted by Julie Andrews will feature a non-binary character.

Julie’s Greenroom is a show headed by Julie Andrews as a performing arts teacher for her five puppet students.

Together they work to create and produce a musical throughout the series.

The puppets, who all celebrate a different branch of diversity, include Riley – a gender neutral character.

Riled develops a persona for herself in the show as “loving” technical backstage stuff.

A writer for the show said that that if they were pushed to label her gender identity then “we’d say that she’s a girl, but maybe not forever. We wanted to be as diverse as possible.”

The show is currently on Netflix and has 13 episodes.

The video sharing platform has become renowned for its LGBT inclusive shows, so renowned in fact that we made a handy list of all the best ones that you can watch today.

The spoiler free list compiles shows which shine as brightly as an LGBTQ+ rainbow, but which are basically impossible to find all together on Netflix.

Classics that everybody has seen such as Orange is the New Black and shows you might never have known had LGBT characters such as Archer are all featured.
