The Walt Disney Company renewed its commitment to having LGBTQ+ representation in their promotions to children by partnering with TikTok influencer Seann Altman, a genderfluid biological male who uses he/him pronouns, to demonstrate how they can dress like Minnie Mouse, drawing criticism from conservatives.
In a video on the Disney Style TikTok account posted on July 21, Altman goes through the pieces of his outfit to look like Minnie Mouse. He said, “The character most like me is Minnie Mouse.”
