Lesbian Kiss Restored in Lightyear After Staff Uproar Over LGBTQIA+ Censorship in Pixar Films

March 18, 2022

On March 9th, 2022, LGBTQIA+ employees and allies at Pixar Animation Studios sent a letter to Walt Disney Company leadership saying the studio had actively censored “overtly gat affection” in its films, according to Variety. The Pixar employees’ allegations were made as part of Disney employees’ larger outcry over the company’s response to the “Don’t Say Gay Bill” in Florida. The first announcement about Pixar’s censorship of LGBTQIA+ content didn’t come with any news about what films had been impacted. But now, a source close to the production of Pixar’s Lightyear—starring Chris Evans as the real-life inspiration for the Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear—said a lesbian kiss was originally cut from the film.
