Karey Burke Talks The Future Of Disney


In the past five years, Disney and the imprints under its umbrella have made valiant efforts to diversify the brand with productions that have a strong premise based on African culture, Asian culture, Mexican culture, and more. In an effort to further establish its inclusive environment, Disney's President of General Entertainment content aims to provide more visibility for the LGBTQ community.

“I’m here as a mother of two queer children, actually,” an emotional Burke said during a company-wide call to promote Disney's 'Reimagine Tomorrow' campaign. “One transgender child and one pansexual child, and also as a leader.”

In addition to stating that she fully supports the idea of having “many, many” characters who are LGBTQ+ community, Burke also indicated that 50 percent of the recurring characters from Disney's universe will come from  “underrepresented groups” by the end of 2022.
