Diney #MagicalPride 🏳️‍🌈 El pasado 1 junio, inició el mes más importante de la comunidad #LGBTIQ. Este año, #DisneyLand, específicamente su sede de #Paris, decidió mostrar todo el apoyo a los derechos de las personas #sexodiversas con una gran marcha denominada “Magical Pride”. 👀 Pese a la recaudación de firmas en contra, para evitar a toda costa este evento, los representantes de la casa de dibujos animados, no dieron marcha atrás y aprobaron el ¡Go! A la primera marcha del #orgullo en las instalaciones del famoso parque temático. En Disneyland de California y Disney World de Florida, ambas en Estados Unidos, se llevaron a cabo fiestas similares. 👀 Con el lema, “El amor llega de cualquier color”, los visitantes lucieron la playera oficial de la celebración que también llevaba un #MickyMouse en forma de logotipo. 👀 Disneyland Paris, Walt Disney Studios y Disney Village, fueron testigos de la multitudinaria población que lucía con orgullo, los siete colores de la bandera gay mientras disfrutaban de las diferentes atracciones. 👀 Asimismo, algunos de los personajes animados más afamados de la historia de esta casa, como Mickey, Minnie e incluso Lilo y Stitch fueron los primeros representantes en promover con caravanas, globos, decoraciones y suvenir la normalidad de parejas sexodiversas y familias homoparentales. 👀 “En Disney apostamos y apoyamos la diversidad, y estamos orgullosos de celebrar Magical Pride, la diversidad de todos los colores del Orgullo LGTBIQ”, fueron las palabras de Natacha Rafalski, presidenta de la compañía al momento de subir al escenario. 👀 #pride #junio #gay #lgbt #gaypride #farandula #espectaculo #show #venezuela #miami #mexico #brasil #farandula #famosos #mesdelorgullo

The experience not only allowed visitors to hang out with their favorite Disney characters, enjoy thrilling attractions late into the night, get all dolled up with a flashy hairstyle and rainbow manicure, but it also included the theme park’s first-ever pride parade and it was a celebration to remember!

The parade featured a spectacle of hundreds of marchers in rainbow t-shirts, colorful floats, rainbow balloons pieced together to resemble that of Mickey icon heads, and characters from major Disney films like “Aladdin,” “Toy Story,” “Ratatouille,” and “Lilo & Stitch.”

Mickey and Minnie also showed their support of the event in fashionable pride outfits while riding in a car decorated with rainbows and hearts. Later that day, the characters posed for photos alongside their Disney friends Genie, Woody, and Buzz Lightyear.

Other celebrations found at the specially ticketed event included a Magic Lip Sync-Along competition, performances from French disco star Corine and British band Years & Years. The Olly Alexander-fronted group covered “Reflection” from the Disney animated classic “Mulan” and the celebration also included a lineup of festivities with DJ sets from SindyKatz and Boy George.
