LGBT+ Animation

As I said in my Animated Films Directed by Women list, Mainstream Hollywood has been rather guilty of creating films with a severe lack of diversity, most notably when it comes to representing people of the LGBT+ community. Its especially worrying when we see this in animated cinema as most animated films are marketed towards children and teenagers, who tend to be more impressionable. And how are impressionable young queer kids supposed to feel about a key part of their identity when a large portion of the media they consume acts as though this part of them doesn't exist?!

thankfully, we’re slowly getting more and more animated movies and shorts with canon LGBT characters. hopefully the number of these will…
