    Disney releases first full line of LGBTQ Pride merchandise

    Despite having less than a handful of queer characters, Disney has had a fanatically devoted gay fanbase. Just take a look at Tumblr (briefly, before you get weirded out). This year, the company has finally decided to embrace their queer following (and profit potentials), releasing a full brand new line of gay pride merchandise. As of Monday, Disney's queer fans and allies can purchase everything from rainbow tank tops to rainbow Mickey Mouse hats.  "The most magical place on earth" just got a whole lot gayer, and we're all the better for it.

They've now expanded that to an entire array of clothing.  It appears to be the first year Disney has released a full collection of pride gear. Fans can buy anything from Disney pride pins to fitted tank tops to rainbow Mickey collection travel packs, all available on their website for purchase.

Obviously, Disney has a long way to go when it comes to representation of the queer community in their films and movies. Kids need more than fawning, gay LeFou to look up to. How about a masc-of-center Elsa, Disney? She can be a Princess and a charming androgynous locksmith. Still, it's a step forward at a time when our culture appears to be taking giant leaps back. I'll take any small, complicated dose of corporate progressivism wherever I can find it.

    Exclusive - Comcast prepares all-cash bid to gate-crash Disney-Fox deal: sources

    Comcast Chief Executive Brian Roberts only plans to proceed with the bid if a federal judge allows AT&T Inc's (T.N) planned $85 billion acquisition of Time Warner Inc (TWX.N) to proceed, the sources said. The U.S. Department of Justice has opposed the AT&T-Time Warner deal over antitrust concerns, and a decision from U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon is expected in June. Disney Chief Executive Bob Iger clinched an all-stock deal with Fox Executive Chairman Rupert Murdoch in December to acquire Fox's film, television and international businesses, giving the world's largest entertainment company an arsenal of shows and movies to combat growing digital rivals Netflix Inc (NFLX.O) and Amazon.com Inc (AMZN.O).

    Drag Queen Elsa frees police truck trapped in Boston blizzard

    Leave it to Queen Elsa to step in during a blizzard. Drag Queen Elsa, that is. This Elsa was spotted outside a south Boston bar, The Gallows, pushing a police wagon that was stuck in the snow. Chants of "Go Elsa!" are heard in the background, as he single-handedly managed to free the truck, all while wearing a flowing gown and heels.  And because Elsa is a queen, after this feat of strength, he takes an elegant curtsy, to remind us that we are in the presence of Frozen royalty.
