Praise for Lightyear’s LGBTQ+ inclusion for ‘depicting love the way it exists in the world’

PinkNews says Lightyear star Keke Palmer has applauded the animated film’s LGBTQ+ representation for “depicting life and love the way that exists” in the world.

The actor voices Izzy Hawthorne, who becomes a close ally of accomplished Space Ranger Buzz Lightyear (Chris Evans), in the Toy Story spin-off. Izzy is the granddaughter of Commander Alisha Hawthorne (Uzo Aduba), and the film features a same-sex kiss between Alisha and her wife. 

Palmer told the i that she thought the inclusion of LGBTQ+ characters and Black characters is “progress” as it signals that films are becoming more representative of the audiences that love them. 

“Disney, Pixar, there’s a wide audience, and a lot of their audience is obviously LGBTQ+, women, Black women… people that want to be represented in films,” she said. “So, yes, 100 per cent, I think it is progress.”
