LGBTQ+ “Barbie” Actors Discussed Representation In Barbie Land

While much is known about Margot and Ryan’s Barbie and Ken, less is known about the other dolls in Barbie’s Dream Land, particularly the dolls played by LGBTQ+ actors. Fortunately, three openly LGBTQ+ actors playing Barbies and Kens — Hari Nef, Alexandra Shipp, and Scott Evans — recently appeared on the cover of Out Magazine where they opened up about bringing LGBTQ+ representation to iconic characters.

As the film’s director Greta Gerwig told Out: “There’s no way we could have told this story without bringing in the LGBTQ+ community, and it was important for us to represent the diversity that Mattel has created with all of the different Barbies and Kens that exist today.”
