While Disney’s American theme parks in Florida and California have hosted “Gay Day” events since as early as 2007 and Disneyland Paris has held unofficial gay-friendly events since 2014, on June 1, Disneyland Paris will host Disney’s first official “Magical Pride” event to honor Gay Pride Month. The event encourages patrons to “dress like a dream, feel fabulous and experience Walt Disney Studios Park like never before—loud, proud, and alive with all the colors of the rainbow.”
Disney’s upcoming film Jungle Cruise will feature an openly homosexual character for the first time. The film is slated for an October release.
