Pixar movies have accused Disney of censoring same-sex affection in the movie ‘Turning Red’. A group of LGBTQIA+ employees has made a statement describing that their parent company is willingly not openly depicting the gay characters in the movie.

In an open letter, the employees have stated that ‘Nearly every moment of overtly gay affection is cut at Disney’s behest, regardless of when there is a protest from both the creative teams and executive leadership at Pixar’.

The declaration came in front of everyone as a response to a company-wide e-mail dispatched by Disney’s CEO Bob Chapek on Monday. Through this, he has defended the media conglomerate’s lackluster response to Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Homosexual’ invoice.

Chapek wrote in the memo that Disney can make more inclusive and impactful content, which has the potential to make the ‘biggest impact’.

Where on the other hand Pixar is saying that they have created movies which are made with beautiful stories, full of diverse characters and now Disney is crumbling down what they used to be before.

In the letter, Pixar said, ‘Even if creating LGBTQIA+ content was the answer to fixing the discriminatory legislation in the world, we are being barred from creating it’.

This whole scenario has become a part of politics. It has started a debate in the United States. The authorities are saying that they cannot portray subjects like gender identity in their films. It can affect the children of schools.

‘classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards’ stated in the Florida bill.

Ultimately the letter from these Pixar employees urges Disney to withdraw the financial support of all legislatures who reported the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill and take a ‘decisive public stand’ against the legislation.

The movie is going to premiere on Disney+ on 11th March.
