This session will explore the absence of overtly queer characters in Disney (which mention or are explicitly referred to as being queer). Despite this absence, it can be argued that numerous queer characters have been written into the Disney films and are given traits commonly associated with being queer. This will be an audience participation centred session which encourages discussion around this phenomenon and suggestions for better representation within the Disney films. Content note: This session will include critical discussion of homophobic stereotyping in the source media.
