‘The Acolyte’ Is the Most ‘Gayest Star Wars Yet’


The announcement for Disney+ streaming series, The Acolyte, proudly highlights its significant representation for the LGBTQ+ community during Pride Month, labeling it the “gayest Star Wars yet.”

Watch the preview below…

Disney seems to be taking a different approach, especially if you’re a Star Wars fan. Are you still subscribing to Disney+? Think about the implications of funding billions in content that might not align with your values.

The announcement should not come as a surprise. This has been known for a while. This article is almost three years old:

Leslye Headland, who is a lesbian, serves as the Disney Plus series’ showrunner, writer, and executive producer. She is the first openly queer person to take charge of an on-screen Star Wars project and has promised that her perspective as an LGBT+ person will be prominent in the new series. She told The Advocate that she was “excited to do the type of character work” that she would normally do in her other projects as she joins the Star Wars universe. To her surprise, Headland said, this idea was something that “everyone was into.”

Here’s another perspective:

Headland went on to discuss why queer representation matters to the LGBTQ+ community, especially the fans of universes like Star Wars. “You have to feel like this is speaking directly to you, regardless of what you might be going through, at what point in your life you’re going through it,” Headland said. “That being said, as somebody that is a lesbian, every time I see gay or queer representation in media, I scream with happiness. There is just nothing like seeing that out in the world.”

The primary reason no one should be surprised is that this is Disney, known for consistent inclusivity. Equality is a significant value, and everyone, including gay people, should be treated with humanity and allowed to live their lives in peace.

This approach is concerned with shaping minds and presenting diverse perspectives. Getting content to younger audiences is also a goal for Disney — DISNEY!

There’s no issue with Hollywood making content for everyone, including gay people. Hollywood should be inclusive. This initiative aims for diverse representation in media and fostering understanding between parents and children.

This is an active decision, folks.

If you subscribe to Disney+, reflect on how it aligns with your beliefs and values.
