As Pride Month approaches, we have even more reasons to celebrate with the announcement of an inclusive episode called “Polly’s New Crew” in the second season. This special installment aims to emphasize diversity and LGBTQ+ representation. It does so by reflecting on the experiences of some team members who have recently come out using the they/them pronouns.
While the show continues to champion inclusivity and representation, it also promises to capture audiences through its music. A captivating score from K-pop girl band TRI.BE establishes the ambiance for the series, with the irresistible tune “The Bha Bha Song” serving as its catchy theme.
This partnership between TRI.BE and their original theme song is a strong and impactful message for children all over the world. “Come as you are” is a message of self-inclusion and acceptance that resonates with everyone, regardless of age, gender, or background. Young people need to know they are loved and accepted for who they are without judgment or discrimination. This song encourages children to be proud of their individuality and embrace their uniqueness.
