Disney: 30 Queer-Coded Disney Characters Other Than Else

LGBTQ+ Community has faced a lot for ages. And representation? Nah! That’s not in the cards. They’ve suffered a lot, but the least we can do is give them the recognition they deserve. This will also help them feel included, accepted and might as well enlarge audiences’ perception! In some of the projects, if they are represented, they’re ended with silly death scenes that don’t even make sense or weren’t required. Don’t ask me for names, there are many! Disney, being such a huge network that impacts both kids and adults does no good either. Instead of respectfully portraying the community, they portray Queer-Coded characters. It’s when a fictional character is shown to be portraying stereotypical traits such a body language, dialogues, or putting them in situations that show they’re queer. However, they do not explicitly state them as being queer. Check out 30 of Disney’s queer-coded characters!

If we’ve missed any (which we must’ve), please comment below! Disney is such a large network that must simply portray and include the LGBTQ+ community in their shows and movies. What do you think? Using Queer-Coding is just not what they should do. Millions of people across the globe watch Disney movies and shows, they should be more inclusive and representative!
