    This is fuking Disney for God's sake


    Pixar has unveiled its first gay main character in its new short film "Out" released on Friday.

    The computer animation studio, owned by Disney, premiered the film on the Disney+ streaming service through its SparkShorts series. It follows the story of a man named Greg who struggles with coming out to his parents before moving in with his boyfriend, Manuel.

    Disney+ announced the "heartwarming" tale on its Twitter account along with the short's traileDisney+

    In the clip, Greg is in his bedroom practicing how he'll come out to his parents when they show up at his doorstep. His trusty dog, Jim, is then seen rushing around the house to help hide evidence of Greg's relationship.

    "Out" is the first release from Pixar to feature a gay main character. It's also the first animated gay main character for Disney.

    "Out" was directed by Steven Clay Hunter, who also worked on "Wall-e" and "Toy Story 2" among other Pixar films. Max Sachar, known for his work on "Coco" and "Incredibles 2," serves as the film's producer.

    Pixar hadn't released a film with an openly gay character until its release of this year's "Onward" which features a purple cyclops character voiced by Lena Waithe who references a girlfriend.

    Disney has been criticized in the past for its lack of LGBTQ characters in its programs. The network broke ground back in 2017 with its series "Andi Mack," a teen-based show that was the first to depict a character coming to terms with the fact that they are gay.

    Disney has also featured a few other LGBTQ characters in their live-action films. "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" featured a same-sex kiss between two soldiers while "Beauty and the Beast" portrayed LeFou as gay.

    The studio was praised for its inclusion of a gay protagonist by Twitter users this week.

    I love coming out stories that are done well, and I have high hopes that "Out" is just that!

      Moms and dads would be appalled and embarrassed if they knew the history of Disney and how they came to be what they are now....the CIA bought the land for the one in Orlando for starters....but anyway, back to here and now....thank you Disney for keeping the liberalism virus alive and well....its funny because whenever I do online dating, if the woman's profile says Disney lover she is 99% of the time a liberal....which makes sense because liberals just like Disney lovers like to live in fairy tale land and be as far away from reality as possible

          I'd love to lock Disney in the closet with all their skeletons.

            Rumors that CEO Bob Iger abruptly resigned amid pedophilia rumors? Those skeletons? Its sad how many people are brainwashed and don't do their own research....I admittedly was one of them until these last couple years.....but if people actually researched the company's skeletons that they give money to, whether it's an organization, theme park, donation center, whatever....boy oh boy

              Those aren’t skeletons! Those are trophies and besides it was consensual. Well except for the kids being hugged by the rats.

                When I was a boy growing up, Sunday night before school on Monday always ended with “The Wonderful World of Disney” and you could count on Davey Crockett, Ol’ Yeller, The Swiss Family Robinson for adventure or Son of Flubber, The Computer Wore Tennis Shoes, or Gus for some good, clean laughs. It was good entertainment and my kids grew up watching all the Disney oldies, many we still have on VHS. And now this schit.

                But why would I be shocked? We’ve got plenty of commercials these days featuring gay couples out shopping together and movies that glorify this stuff like Broke Ass Mountain or whatever the hell its called. I recently read where Brad Pitt was a big supporter of same sex marriage. Brad Pitt, who’s gotten more trim in his day than Frank Sinatra! I’ll just be damned if I can make sense of any of it. Well, just another reason I can use to not have to go with the grandkids someday to Disney World.

                BTW Coot ought to get extra likes for working CSN into his title!

                  Not shocking really. From what I've read/heard, a huge percentage of the park employees are gay as a $4 bill. (Used to $3 but inflation you know).

                  Same can likely be said for the entire employee ranks....not just the theme park employees. Didn't used to be that I don't think. We could ask G8orbill what it used to be like--If I recall he worked at Disney years ago when it used to be a normal 'fairy-tale' place. Now it's become a fairy-fag place.

                    It's still a fairy tale place. Now the tales are about the ferries' tails though.

                        Disney will honor the LBGTQ with a Pride Main Street Parade. The lead sponsor float is Snap-On Tools.

                            I predict it wins every Academy Award there is to 20 minute standing ovations.

                              I think my favorite Disney movie is the one where the dude breaks into the chick's house and molests her while she's sleeping without her consent.

                                            Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
