Get Ready To Celebrate Pride With Disney's New "Rainbow Mickey" Apparel

Looks like Disney’s doubling down on Pride this year.

Last month, we shared with you that Disneyland is now selling rainbow Mickey ears, and now Disney has announced that it’s selling Pride merchandise just in time for Pride month.

The “Rainbow Mickey” pride merchandise is on sale now. Even better, the merchandise can be bought online unlike the Mickey ears which are being slowly rolled out across Disney theme parks. Even better, the rainbow shirts, bags, and more are going to be doing great things for the community as well.

Until June 30, every Pride styled Disney item you buy will make money for LGBTQ charity GLSEN (pronounced glisten), which fights to create safe and inclusive schools for LGBTQ youth. Disney has announced that it's willing to donate up to $50,000 and 10% of every purchase will go towards that donation.

Can we all make Disney donate the fill $50,000? If you want to try, go run over to Shop Disney now and get your rainbow sunglasses, t-shirts, hats, and more.

Disney Theme Parks Just Got A Lot More Exciting Thanks To New Pride Hats

Disneyland is now selling rainbow Mickey ears!

While LGBTQ fans of the Disney empire have repeatedly been disappointed by the lack of queer representation in House of Mouse films, they might be excited to see representation forming elsewhere.

The rainbow colored hats are now being sold at a Five & Dime in Disneyland with hopefully the product spreading across the globe (and online) in due time.

The hats themselves have bright rainbow ears and a red cap underneath. On the cap, there are a pair of Mickey gloves making a heart sign with another rainbow inside.

Fans are already celebrating the arrival of the merchandise on Twitter.

In addition, Youtuber Joey Garceffa and his partner Daniel recently posted a video of their family going to Disneyland and getting the hats.



Would you buy a pair of rainbow Mickey ears?

Did Disney Remove A Bisexual Character From Mulan?

Did Disney Remove A Bisexual Character From Mulan?

The LGBTQ Community Continues To Get The Shaft!

It wasn't long ago when Disney was sticking up for the LGBTQ community by dismissing Malaysia for trying to edit out a *gay* moment from the live action Beauty and the Beast film. Low key, for as long as I can recall, Disney has been pretty progressive in their dedication towards their LGBTQ brothers and sisters. Like, Disney does have a Gay Days, so...who wouldn't believe they are so for us, you know?! Well, it turns out Disney is kind of being a brat surrounding their 2020 live action Mulan film...by removing a bisexual character!

According to Next Shark, a Twitter user is claiming original Mulan character, Li Shang - a fellow solider who crushes on Mulan when he believes she is a man - will not be in the live action film. Instead, his doppelganger will be a Commander who is Mulan's mentor. Hmm, that is just all too familiar, right? 

This very suspect rumor comes on the tail of Disney announcing their live action Mulan isn't going to be much like the original animated film. This includes the dismissal of any original songs - see ya later Christina Aguilera - and an entirely different plot. Now, a lot may go into this especially the would-be heavy-Game of Thrones style action sequences which could go over budget, yet I cannot help but wonder...is the real reason we're not seeing the original Mulan story because of the homoerotic themes? I mean, she did have a man falling in love with her...when he believed she was a man. While animated versions are deemed harmless by the society, I could imagine a lot of people being in an uproar of the whole idea of it. For what it's worth, we get an introduction to new characters such as a villainous Witch and Mulan's sister, so perhaps we have to let go of nostalgia and hope for an incredible film.
