Inclusion Win! Pixar Announces First Openly Gay Amorphous Blob

By Danny Neary

Queer characters aren't new to the history of Pixar films but until now those characters' sexuality has only ever been implied, and absolutely never spoken of. This year, however, Pixar is making history by having its first openly gay character, a nameless amorphous blob! Â

This is a huge win for the LGBTQIA community as Pixar has finally created a character the queer community can call their own with the inclusion of a bisexual amorphous blob in their latest film, Smile. Smile tells the story of two young boys who go on an adventure while learning about the importance of completely platonic friendship. Along the way these two friends meet a nameless amorphous blob who just so happens to be a member of the LGBTQIA community!Â
