16 Disney Characters Who Were Probably Gay

Maybe they're gay, maybe they aren't? Either way these characters are definitely part of the LGBTQIA community.

16. Francis (A Bug's Life)

Disney / Via

Francis was a career drag queen who always seemed super sensitive when people confused him for being a girl.

Which begs the question, why work as a drag performer if you don't like being mistaken for a woman?

Thou doth protest too much!

15. Timon (The Lion King)


Not only do Timon and Pumbaa seem to have a healthy, committed, gay relationship, but Timon jumps at the opportunity to "dress in drag and do the hula."

14. Hades (Hercules)

Disney / Via Tumblr

Talk about flaming!

But seriously, Hades is the ultimate sassy gay villain.

13. Prince Eric (The Little Mermaid)

Disney / Via

Scared shitless to kiss a girl, has to be hypnotized to fall in love with a woman?

Come out already, Prince Eric!

12. Grimsby (The Little Mermaid)


Who better to advise the gay prince then a proper old queen?

"Eric, I think you swallowed a bit too much sea water..."

11. Terkina (Tarzan)

Disney / Via

Voiced by out-and-proud Rosie O'Donnell, Terk is super androgynous, shows no interest in male apes, and is best buds with Tarzan.

So basically Tarzan is a total lez-bro.

10. Governor Ratcliffe (Pocahontas)


Lushy and theatrical, Governor Ratcliffe was surely in heaven spending weeks on a ship surrounded by men.

9. Prince Achmed (Aladdin)


Overdressed, self-absorbed, and desperate for Jasmine's hand in marriage despite the fact he'd never met her before.

If he wasn't gay before, then he probably turned gay after that disastrous encounter with Rajah and Jasmine.

8. Kuzco (The Emperor's New Groove)


Dressed in drag, Kuzco is a picky customer who eventually ditches his potatoes for a salad.

Take a seat, princess!

7. Chi-Fu (Mulan)


How many straight guys do you know who exit a bath with a towel draped around their chest and a tight hair wrap?

6. Mulan (Mulan)

Disney / Via

Just because she dressed in drag doesn't make Mulan a lesbian.

But saying she never wants to see another man naked definitely make my gaydar ping.

5. Baloo (The Jungle Book)


Another classic Disney character in drag, but Baloo also seems to enjoy having his prostate stimulated.

Talk about bears in the woods.

4. Merida (Brave)

Disney / Via

Another brave Disney lesbian (pun intended).

But Merida straight up poisons her mother in an attempt to avoid marrying a man.

3. LeFou (Beauty and the Beast)


It's pretty obvious that LeFou was in love with Gaston.

But less obvi is the fact that LeFou seems to have a kinky side. Bukkake much?

2. Ken (Toy Story)

Disney / Via

No comment necessary — if you've seen Toy Story 3 then you know...

Ken is a big-ass homo!

1. Oaken (Frozen)

Disney's most visible gay character yet!

Oaken isn't shy about introducing Anna to his family, and why should he be?
