Top LGBT group criticizes Disney and Hollywood for not promoting homosexuality enough

By Jonathon Van Maren

As 2022 draws a to a close, one would think that GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) would be pleased with their cultural success. Disney put kissing lesbians in Lightyear and put a “queer” teenager with an encouraging family in Strange World (the animated blockbuster bombed at the box office). Peppa Pig got lesbian polar bears, and Scooby-Doo outed Velma as a lesbian. The LGBT colonization not only of the entertainment industry, but of children’s entertainment—there are few franchises that have resisted including LGBT ideology in their storylines—is nearly complete. 

But according to GLAAD’s 10th Annual Studio Responsibility Index—released this week—the LGBT “community” should instead be very concerned. Disney, which took a financial pounding for their commitment to the culture wars, received a grade of “insufficient,” and their much-marketed LGBT characters were criticized as too stereotypical. Universal Pictures and United Artists Releasing also received “insufficient” grades—despite the fact, as Deadline noted, that they “far exceeded a goal set four years ago by GLAAD when it challenged the studios to include identifiably LGBTQ characters in at least 20% of their films.” 

In fact, as Deadline reported: “Hollywood’s seven major film studios all received grades of ‘insufficient,’ ‘poor,’ or ‘failing’ in GLAAD’s latest report card on LGBTQ inclusivity.” That is because despite the entire entertainment industry falling all over themselves to ingratiate themselves to the LGBT movement (which as long since become an industry), nothing will ever be enough. Again, three major studios including Disney “far exceeded” the goal given to them by GLAAD four years ago, only to see GLAAD jogging past them with the goalposts and getting an “insufficient” grade for their efforts—efforts which cost them plenty of money. 

But GLAAD, which depends on the existence of alleged discrimination to justify its ongoing grift, found plenty of things to complain about. According to their report, the overall percentage of films that included LGBT representation dropped, as did the amount of screen-time occupied by those characters. Only nine films actually passed, which gives you an idea of what their standard is: “Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story (20th Century Studios) which featured the transgender character Anybodys, played by nonbinary actor iris menas; Disney’s Eternals”— which featured Marvel’s first openly homosexual couple and kiss — and Jungle Cruise; MGM’s No Time To Die [with implied homosexual character Q (Ben Whishaw)]; Sony’s Our Ladies, Universal’s Licorice PizzaDear Evan Hansen, and Candyman and Warner Bros.’ In the Heights.
