One of such character is his chef, Ma Hyun-yi, who is later revealed to be a transgender woman. Prior to that scene, her male co-worker is seen talking about Hyun-yi, saying that, as someone who lives against nature and in her own way, Hyun-yi is stronger than anyone. At first, when it was announced that Onward would feature an LGBTI character, people were sceptical. The actual scene in the movie probably caught many off guard as Specter was very ordinary as far as the onscreen representation of LGBTI characters goes. It was good to see that the ban didn't deter Disney from incorporating LGBTI characters, no matter how small that inclusion may be.
