‘Finding Dory’ May Feature Pixar’s First Lesbian Couple

Pixar just released a full-length trailer for Finding Dory, and we are 99.9999999999 percent sure that it includes a lesbian couple. Before you freak out and get too excited, no, Dory is not part of the lesbian couple. However, there is still LGBT visibility, so please feel free to bask in the glory that is Pixar. 

In the trailer, we see Hank the octopus run into two women pushing a stroller. Sure, you could say they’re just “friends” or “sisters,” but we know better! Ellen DeGeneres, who voices Dory, has played a massive role in changing the conversation about the LGBT community, and while our view of the women was only fleeting, we trust that Ellen and Pixar would create a fiery combination that’d put children’s films ahead in the game of lesbian visibility. 

Regardless of whether or not those two women are actually the first lesbian couple to appear in a Pixar film (fingers crossed), our excitement shows our society’s growing hunger to see this kind of relationship on screen. Hopefully Disney will hear our cries and give Elsa a girlfriend while they’re at it.
