The Walt Disney Company isn't backing down from its commitment to advancing an LGBT agenda.
This weekend, the Disney-owned Marvel Cinematic Universe is slated to release its newest film Thor: Love and Thunder, the fourth installment in the series about the mythological god. And according to two of the stars of the movie, it is filled with LGBT storylines.
Natalie Portman, who plays Jane Foster in the film, said the movie is "so gay" after being asked by reporters at a London event, "How gay is the film?" Her co-star and the film's director, Taika Waititi, who voices Korg, interjected, calling the film "super gay."
So, what happens in the movie?
Waititi's character is reportedly part of the LGBT community. During the movie, Korg alludes to his parents' same-sex relationship, describing the way in which he was "conceived," by two males holding hands over molten lava. As PluggedIn noted, it is possible there are not females in Korg's species. Nevertheless, it seems Disney uses it to elevate LGBT relationships.
Additionally, during the new film, Tessa Thompson's character Valkyrie is purportedly a member of the LGBT community, according to Pink News, a pro-LGBT outlet.
This comes after Disney executives said in leaked videos from the brand's internal summit this spring the company would elevate more LGBT storylines in projects moving forward.
