LGBTQ characters spread to American cartoons


Marvel, Pixar, Disney, CN, and Nickelodeon embrace LGBTQ cartoon characters

History of LGBTQ in American cartoons

LGBTQ characters in movies have been around since the 1950s, but “gay toon” was taboo until 1967 when the age of Aquarius when the sexual revolution was at its height.

1953, Princess Sapphire

The Gender-bending manga Japanese character Prince Knight (Princess Sapphire) was serialized. An anime version was introduced in 1967.

In the same decade, the “hippie age” peaked and “mandated free sex,” lack of inhibition, especially in nudity, and open drug sessions. During this time, gay cartoon characters were being developed.


From 1967 to 1999, about 42 gay characters were introduced

After the sexual revolution peaked, a total of about 42 gay, trans, and queer characters were presented from 1967 to 1999.

A massive jump at the dawn of the internet

From 2000 to 2019, it rose to 300 LGBTQ characters

When the internet and smartphone tablets became readily available, LGBTQ cartoon characters jumped to 300 from 2000 to 2019. [List of gay animations]

In 2010, Cartoon Network’s ‘Adventure Time‘ is attributed to the “animation golden age” when a plethora of diverse cartoons peaked. In 2018, Adventure Time’s 10th season confirmed the gay relationship between its two main characters: Princess Bubblegum and Marceline.

Another LGBTQ milestone was when two male characters, Arthur and Mr. Ratburn, married in 2019. It was significant because an actual marriage was depicted for young kids to watch this time.


The gay marriage of the famous cartoon character Arthur was significant because it broke the barrier that shields young children from being exposed to the liberal and permissive society of the west.

In 2021, President Biden’s Equality Act gave way to a bolder indoctrination of tolerance and diversity to children. Hence, more gay cartoon characters.
