It's no secret that Schitt's Creek has left a lasting impression on many LGBTQ+ fans all over the world.

The hilarious, feel-good, Canadian comedy series (which first premiered in 2015 and tells the story of a rich family that loses its money and was forced to move to the small town of Schitt's Creek where they end up learning how to be better people) was considered a game-changer for LGBTQ+ representation on TV because of it's funny, light-hearted, and positive portrayal of queer people and relationships, and although the series finale just aired earlier this week, its impact in pop culture will be felt for many, many years to come. 

During a documentary special that aired after the series' ending, the cast of the Pop TV show sat down to read a signed letter written by a group of moms of LGBTQ+ kids, and to say things got emotional would be a huge understatement. 

"Your commitment to represent love and tolerance in your show is so important to families like ours," Noah Reid—who played Patrick, the love interest of David (Dan Levy)—read out loud to his fellow cast and crew. "Your willingness to explore, inform and educate about LGBT+ people and their relationships in an entertaining but respectful and positive manner sets a tone that is often missing."

By the time Noah was done reading the letter, there wasn't a dry eye in the entire room. 

"We sincerely believe that shows like Schitt’s Creek will serve as a catalyst to help change the world into a kinder, safer, more loving place for all LGBTQ people to live, and because of that, we will remain forever grateful."
