Painting Series Gives Gay Disney Characters A “Happily Ever After” Of Their Own

 

If you’ve been fantasizing of Prince Eric whisking Beauty and the Beast‘s Gaston off his feat, your dreams may have come true: As part of “Disasterland,” his new exhibit at the La Luz De Jesus Gallery in Los Angeles, artist Rodolfo Loaiza’s is showcasing of Disney’s most recognizable characters in same-sex clinches.

“Heterosexual happy endings have been discarded; outdated,” Loaiza says of the series. “In this story, discriminated minorities will finally achieve the resolution they’ve yearned for, beyond any bias or phobia.”

Aww, almost makes you want to run out and kiss a few frogs. Almost.

Other, less romantic images in the show include Snow White getting drunk in the forest, Sleeping Beauty confronting Freddie Krueger and Cinderella flashing her groin as she steps out of her enchanted carriage.

      I wonder when Disney will make a gay romance in their storyline (They always have one). It has to be soon

      @Dave: Unless he already got permission and Disney is getting a kick back. Disney has a long history of promoting equality.

      I’d say this easily qualifies as fair use. The artist is using Disney characters as social commentary.

      I believe this is protected speech. As long as it is satirical or used for socio-political comment, the precedent is extensive. Doesn’t mean they couldn’t sue, but at least in the US, they would not win.

      The last one of Peter Pan dressed as Michael Jackson is funny, but so wrong!

      Fair use, as far as I know, only applies if there is no product motive. If the artwork is sold to make a profit then it is not fair use. It is abuse of copyright. Fair use comes into play when there is no profit motive (such as when Universities, Religious Groups or NFPs use the material without gaining a direct profit).
