Disney, Pixar's 'Lightyear' sees same-sex kiss restored amid controversy with queer character: report

The kiss occurred in the first 30 minutes of the movie, which was shown to an audience Wednesday at CinemaCon, according to USAToday.

The kiss was reportedly removed and then reinstated after backlash over the lack of response from Disney over Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill. The bill bars instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through the third grade.

A first look at Disney Pixar's "Lightyear" confirmed that a same-sex kiss scene had been restored to the film following controversy over Disney's lack of response to Florida's "Don't Say Gay" bill.
