I Am Billie Jean King, along with its sister episode, I Am Arthur Ashe, will air on October 8, 2020.
Billie Jean King is the second LGBTQ+ hero to appear on the television show, with the first being Sally Ride. However, she is the first LGBTQ+ hero in the book series. King is openly lesbian. However, the state of Alabama might not air the episode, as they banned the Arthur episode "Mr. Ratburn and the Special Someone" (which features Mr. Ratburn's marriage to a man) and the Clifford the Big Red Dog (2019) episode "Dogbot" (which introduces Samantha's two mothers). It is unknown if the episode will reference her sexuality, or not mention it like Sally Ride in I Am Madam President.
