You might think of Mickey Mouse as the friendly and magical icon of the Disney Corporation, but his dark past has recently surfaced online.
A 1931 comic strip featuring Mickey visiting his ‘effeminate’ neighbor Kat Nipp, has been making its rounds online.
At first, Mickey is scared that his neighbor is a ‘tough bird,’ nervously answering his door saying: ‘Oh, I beg your p-p-pardon! But are you the tough g-g-gentleman who lives here?’
Disney has come a long way in recent decades, recently appointing an openly-gay President and is even sponsoring Orlando’s first annual week-long vacation celebrating LGBT families.
