Is Heartwarming Gay Pixar Short ‘Out’ a sign of more LGBTQ representation to come from Disney?

For years LGBTQ Disney/Pixar fans have been calling out for more representation in the animated universe. We have seen many gay coded characters and minor characters have been revealed to be gay see ‘Zootopia’ and recent Pixar film ‘Onward’. I have written before about Disney’s history of Coded Gay characters and LGBTQ representation which you can read here.

The Short film ‘Out’ landed on Disney + at end of May, as part of Pixar’s Smart Short series. This is the most visible LGBTQ representation from Pixar and Disney to date, with the short centring around main character Greg who is struggling to come out as gay to his parents. I loved this short, it has the same charm as many of the other great Pixar shorts and also lovely to finally see concrete LGBTQ representation from Pixar/Disney. Hopefully this is a good sign of what’s to come from their future feature films.

It is a great short and I highly recommend checking it out.

Happy Purr-ide!

Hello and Happy Pride Month! I first of all wanted to address that this is very difficult time in the world right now. I posted the below link earlier in the month on my socials but wanted to include it here too. A good resource on how to help with the Black Lives Matter movement.

Memeow stands for love, kindness and acceptance and is against all forms of hate.

I’ve recently added some more cards to my etsy shop including cats in the colours of LGBTQ flags. This is due to the popularity of my Trans Cat card in the colours of the trans flag. The text on all of these cards says “You’re Purrfect” and the range now includes cats based on the Lesbian, Gay,Bi and Trans flags.

Recent additions also include a Trans Unicorn card, two Gaymer cards and a prideful Dachshund card! (I have a slight dachshund obsession)

You can check out the full range here!

I hope to get a few more blog posts out this month, See you on the next one! – Josh
