From The Daily Beast:

 

Nickelodeon’s animated hit series The Legend of Korra was always progressive. It went places American children’s television typically avoids, with an ethnically diverse cast of characters—including a number of powerful, complicated girls and women—tackling deep issues like social inequality, war, and PTSD. With its series finale, Korra went even further: It revealed that its main heroine, Korra, and another female character named Asami were in love.

Reading between the lines, Nickolodeon probably nixed showing Korra and Asami kissing, a restriction that's hotly debated, But the fact that a children's show went there and the creators confirmed what it meant afterward is still a step forward, though as co-creator Bryan Konietzko said on his blog, the scene is only “a somewhat significant inching forward,” rather than a “slam-dunk victory for queer representation.”
