Miley Cyrus and Evan Rachel Wood sure are glad the Disney Channel is embracing equality!

Good Luck Charlie, a family-friendly show heading into its fourth and final season, will feature a character with two lesbian moms, TV Guide confirmed. Miley and Evan, both longtime advocates for gay rights and marriage equality, took to Twitter Sunday to express their support for the casting.

Evan first retweeted After Ellen's link to the news, then added her own, "Hell yea."

Then Miley responded, writing,."is this true?!?!?! I commend Disney for making this step into the light of this generation. They control…so much of what kids think! Life isn't bright sets & wardrobe & kids becoming superstars! This is INSPIRING"

Indeed, it is! A Disney Channel spokesperson told TV Guide in a statement: "This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors…Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness."

Makes sense. Mickey Mouse loves and embraces everyone.
