Pixar s first gay lead character arrives in short film Out

Animation giant Pixar for the first time has created a LGBTQ lead character in its latest short film Out. The nine-minute short film premiered on Disney Plus on Friday as a part of the streaming service s SparksShorts series. Written and directed by Steven Clay Hunter, Out revolves around a man named Greg, who struggles with coming out to his parents as he plans to move to the city with his boyfriend, Manuel. When Greg s parents come to visit him at his new apartment, he tries to hide his relationship, but his fairy god-pets, a magical dog and cat, motivate him to tell his parents the truth. The animated short film also features a same-sex kiss. Earlier this year, Disney-Pixar created its first animated LGBTQ character for Onward. The role of Officer Specter, voiced by Lena Waithe, was the animation studio s first self-identified LGBTQ character in its history.
