In recent years, the company has increased its representation in the LGBTQ community.
The 2017 live action Beauty and the Beast featured a gay character and on Disney Channel, Andi Mack became the channel’s first coming-out story line and a main LGBTQ character.
Disney has always enjoyed a sizable LGBTQ following, and its theme parks have been the setting for a number of same-sex proposals and weddings over the years. Still, the company has never officially sanctioned “Gay Days,” an annual Pride-like celebration that draws thousands of queer visitors to its U.S. resorts each year.
