(ETH) – Pixar has just officially revealed its first gay main character on Friday from its new short film “Out.” The new film has a story plot of a man named Greg who struggles with coming out to his parents as gay before moving in with his boyfriend, Manuel according to a report from the Christian Post.
The report states that Greg switches bodies with his magical pet and gets to hear what his family really thinks about his love interest. “Holding Jim’s (his dog’s) collar, Greg casually wishes aloud that he was a dog, and the minds of Greg and Jim magically switch bodies. ‘Greg’ runs outside to play in the yard, where his stoic father is lighting the grill.
