Pixar has been facing some controversy after LGBTQ employees and allies at Pixar Animation Studios sent a statement to Walt Disney Company with the complaints reading:
"We at Pixar have personally witnessed beautiful stories, full of diverse characters, come back from Disney corporate reviews shaved down to crumbs of what they once were. Nearly every moment of overtly gay affection is cut at Disney's behest, regardless of when there is protest from both the creative teams and executive leadership at Pixar. Even if creating LGBTQIA+ content was the answer to fixing the discriminatory legislation in the world, we are being barred from creating it."
And it looks like that statement helped because Pixar's next feature film, "Lightyear" does have a significant female character, who will be in a "meaningful relationship with another woman."
The relationship itself was never in question, but an on screen kiss had been cut and is now reinstated.
