Soon, we’ll have same-sex couples in the background. Soon we’ll have a gay/lesbian/bi sidekick who finds their true love and is happy with them. Soon we’ll have a gay prince and lesbian princess forced to be engaged before they find their real loves in the village below.
Soon, a young suicidal closeted LGBT kid will look at a Disney character like them and realize no matter who hates them, they are valuable and deserve to be alive and happy.

Running will be there 7am while he’s on his work shift. The hills and trails will be there when there are no arms to comfort you.

Only love what can love you back unconditionally.
