Disney have finally aired their first same-sex kiss on one of their main channels. Despite Disney’s constant nods of support toward the LGBTQ community in several of their other media products. they have never openly shown a same -sex kiss. Disney have always shown their support of the LGBTQ community, in movies such as Finding dory and Good luck Charlie, where there are lesbian couples.
Despite Disney’s subtle support of the LGBTQ community they had never shown a same-sex kiss in any of their media products.

I was listening to LBC (http://www.lbc.co.uk, 97.3fm) during the commute today (More than expected as the journey in took an hour and a half, but I digress). It’s a talk radio station, which I felt was probably worth a listen today, due to the news from the other side of the Atlantic. You should give it a go.
There was a particularly interesting conversation on the way home, where a caller (Named Sam in case you were wondering), suggested the involvement US media institutions had in the coverage and representation of both (President-elect) Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton. The caller and the host agreed that all-but-one major TV networks (CNN, ABC, MSNBC, NBC), showed clear support to Democratic candidate Clinton (The exception being Fox News).
“Yeah, so she should have won?” I hear you cry.
But consider the alternative possibility; what if all that positive coverage from the majority of institutions for Clinton actually hid the fact that the American people didn’t actually want to vote for her? What if they (and we over here in the UK), thought it would – of course – go to Clinton as she was getting all the positive representation, but in the process actually missed out on hearing from the audience?
In case you’re wondering how the states voted:
A reminder perhaps in the shift in power from institutions to audiences?
