July 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Pro-LGBT activists are praising Disney’s Toy Story 4 for including a “small but important moment of LGBTQ representation” with a scene of two moms dropping off a boy to school, both of them showing him affection.
“At the start of the movie, when Woody’s new owner Bonnie goes for her first day of kindergarten, there’s a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it scene where one child is dropped off by two moms. Later, the moms return to pick up their child and give them a hug,” states Gay Times in a June 26 article about the scene.
Scene - Representation - Queer - People - Movies
“It’s a small scene, sure, and it’s certainly not the major representation that queer people have been waiting for, but it’s still important. This is one of the biggest movies of the year, after all, and will be seen by millions of all ages around the world,” it added.
Toy Story 4 is now in cinemas and features the continuing saga of Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and other beloved characters in yet another iteration of a series that has delighted audiences and filled the coffers at the Walt Disney Company. The movie was produced by Pixar studios, which is wholly owned by Disney - a company that is one of the biggest media empires on the planet.
Kate - Gardner - Mary - Sue - Moment
Kate Gardner at The Mary Sue agreed that the pro-LGBT moment “was not groundbreaking by any standard” but praised the scene as a “small moment of normalisation.”
“Here was a major family-friendly film, one of the biggest Disney Pixar releases, and they included a **** couple with their son. It’s a small moment of normalization, even if it’s minor. This isn’t a show on Netflix, or a banned episode of Arthur. It’s a Disney Pixar movie, and it showed two women caring for their child together,” she wrote.
