As part of its pro-LGBT agenda, Disney executives confirmed that two characters in the popular animated kids' show Star Wars Resistance are a "gay couple." The Disney official added, "we're proud of that."

As Star Wars Resistance enters its second season, "Disney Executive Producers Brandon Auman, Athena Portillo, and Justin Ridge said on the Coffee with Kenobi podcast that they are 'proud' the two characters, Orka and Flix, are a 'gay couple,'" reported LifeSiteNews and other media

"I think it's safe to say they're an item," said Justin Ridge. "They're absolutely a gay couple and we're proud of that."

Bobby Motnihan, who does the voice for the character Flix, added, "All I can say is that when Flix says 'I love you,' Orka says 'I know.' ... They're the cutest."

Star Wars Resistance was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2018.

In an email to LifeSiteNews, Director Monica Cole said, it was not shocking that Disney is "proud" to have a "gay couple" in an animated program for young children. 

"By choosing to abandon family-friendly entertainment, Disney’s move toward more adult fare may ultimately prove to be a huge mistake,” said Cole. 

“The Disney Channel is deliberately choosing to promote adult content to children," she added, "while the entire Disney media empire is sacrificing children’s innocence.” 

LifeSiteNews further reported that Donald Glover, who played the "Lando Calrissian" in the movie "Solo: A Star Wars Story," was not shy in discussing the possible pansexualism of his character.


“How can you not be pansexual in space?” Glover said on SiriusXM radio.  “There are so many things to have sex with. I didn’t think that was that weird. Yeah, he’s coming on to everybody. I mean, yeah, whatever."

"It just didn’t seem that weird to me because I feel like if you’re in space, it’s kind of like, the door is open!" said Glover.  "It’s like, no, only guys or girls. No, it’s anything. This thing is literally a blob. Are you a man or a woman? Like, who cares? Have a good time out here."
