Disney Film Features Studio’s First Gay Main Character
Out, an animated short created by Pixar and newly released on Disney+ has featured the studio’s first homosexual protagonist in a film geared towards children and families.
The film’s plot, outlined by Deadline, describes: “Greg is preparing to move into the city with his boyfriend, Manuel. Greg is gripped by the difficulty of coming out as gay to his parents, who have paid a surprise visit to help him pack for his move. A dramatic series of events initiated by the couple’s dog ensues. As the official logline puts it, “With some help from his precocious pup, and a little bit of magic, Greg might learn that he has nothing to hide.”
