Disney unveils its 2023 Pride Collection

Celebrate your best life or show off your support with some fantastic Disney merchandise 


Every year, June has been set aside as Pride Month, where members and supporters of the LGBTQ community celebrate what it means to them. But the month is also a time to recognize the challenges the community still faces and spark meaningful discussions on global inclusion. Many companies see Pride Month as the “cool” thing to do. However, Disney has been committed to celebrating diversity for some time. According to Disney’s global vice president of marketing Lisa Beckett, “Disney has a long history of supporting LGBTQIA+ organizations and charities around the world.” 

Stocking up on Pride Month

Disney officially inaugurated Pride Month with its first Pride Collection in 2018, with special merchandise that featured Mickey Mouse and the Disney logo to celebrate the month. Three years later, the celebrations expanded to include characters from “Star Wars,” Marvel and Pixar.

As Disney explains, the annual Pride Collection is created by members and allies of the LGBTQ community and “is a long-standing and critical celebration across Disney.” To help and support the global community, Disney works with nonprofit organizations throughout the year by providing products, experiences, content and philanthropy. Disney donates profits from this collection to LGBTQ organizations worldwide.

In the U.S., Disney lends a helping hand to eight LGBTQ communities, including GLSEN, which aims to make schools a safe and affirming learning environment for all K-12 students. Disney also helps the Los Angeles LGBT Center, one of the longest-standing communities, which was founded in 1969. Disney also partners with several LGBTQ organizations in Europe, Latin America and the Asia-Pacific region.
