Art of the Day #573: Pride Month

Hello again everybody, and welcome to our Pride Month Art of the Day collection.

There have always been LGBT folks working in the animation department of Walt Disney Studios–going all the way back to Snow White and beyond.

And the tradition continues to this day, Byron Howard, one of Zootopia’s co-directors is gay; so is Michael Giacchino, who composed the soundtrack for the film.

There is, however a difference between then and now. Back in the day, revealing that fact in public would have exposed them to ostracism and ridicule–perhaps even dismissal from their jobs. Today, it’s saying nothing a lot of people don’t already know…because today they have the freedom to open up about who they are.

That’s why Gay Pride exists, and that is why, on this final day of June, 2022, ZNN is offering a salute to Pride Month with a collection of LGBT Fanart. Enjoy…and don’t forget to show the original artists some love by clicking on the source-links.


We open with some images of Judy’s neighbors, Bucky and Pronk.  According to Zootopia’s producers, these two were an actual married couple.

Bogo and Clawhauser have always been something of a couple within the Zootopia fanart community.  When the teaser poster for Zootopia+ dropped, that was when it really took off.

We wrap things up with pic by Byron Howard, not LGBT, but how could we not include at least one example of his artwork?

Until next time…


  1. Well, that mention of Byron Howard and Michael Giacchino being gay just made my mind pop. Neat.

  2. I’m cool with all the artwork EXCEPT where Nick and Judy are randomly paired with whatever flavor-of-the-day same sex character JUST to “make them gay”.

    Leave WildeHopps alone. THEY have Chemistry that shouldn’t be interfered with.

    • I feel basically the same; I greatly prefer Wildehopps, but sometimes I need a change of scenery and I highly respect some, even, like Grayhopps (Gideon and Judy). Buut… Bogo and Puss in Boots is not a change of scenery I was looking for… *shudders* Why??? Just, whyyy???

  3. Huh, the last one… Remind me never to take Nick, Judy, and Jack drinking at the same time… Or things can get weird… :/
