As Florida’s Republican Party continue its war on the LGBTQ community with its Parental Rights in Education law aka “Don’t Say Gay“, the Walt Disney Co. strikes back with its launch of an LGBTQ-themed apparel and accessories line.

The LGBTQ merchandise, which is geared for both children and adults, features rainbow-themed motifs imposed on familiar Disney brands, including Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar. Some of Disney’s LGBTQ Clothing Line feature slogans “Belong, Believe, Be Proud.”

Disney told JRL CHARTS LGBT Politics that the new line was created by “LGBTQIA+ employees and allies” and represents “their incredible contributions and place at the heart of the company. We stand in solidarity with our LGBTQIA+ community everywhere,” said Disney’ spokesperson.

The Disney Pride Collection, which is being sold online as well as at Disney parks and other retailers nationwide, is actually a rebranding of Disney’s LGBTQIA+ rainbow-themed apparel that it has been on sale at Disney locations since 2018.

In response to Disney’s attack, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has revoked Disney World’s special self-governing status in Orlando, potentially exposing the company to mountains of new regulations and taxes. However legal scholars say that DeSantis’ attack on Disney will not hold up in court.
