While it may be said all the time, the importance and power of positive representation and seeing oneself on screen is hugely powerful and influential, especially for young viewers. Perhaps no other television series is doing more for positive representation than Netflix’s One Day at a Time. Recently renewed for Season 3, the comedy follows three generations of a Cuban-American family and addresses issues such as LGBT acceptance, gun laws, PTSD and mental health while still managing to make us smile and laugh. Recently showrunners Gloria Calderon Kellett and Mike Royce joined Isabella Gomez, who plays Elena, for a panel to discuss the show’s emphasis on these issues at ClexaCon 2018.
