E3 featured a lesbian kiss — but not everyone was able to see it

The biggest video game convention of the year featured a groundbreaking lesbian kiss, but viewers watching through a Disney channel stream of the event missed it.

E3 is an annual event where video game developers announce and show off tantalising hints of games to come in the next year.

During PlayStation’s press conference on Monday, fans were shown a clip of the upcoming game The Last of Us Part II, the hotly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed The Last of Us.

Developed by Naughty Dog, the game itself is highly violent as the protagonist Ellie is forced to fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic wasteland against zombies and hostile forces.

However, one of the more tender moments of the upcoming game was involved in the broadcast, where Ellie is in a dance hall and is approached by a woman.

The pair grow closer during the trailer and eventually kiss in a tender and groundbreaking moment.

This year’s E3 was shown by the kid-focused channel Disney XD, which attempted to censor any violent content that occurred during the convention.

However, during the Disney channel stream, viewers were stunned to find the stream cut away shortly after the kiss began.

In the broadcast on Disney XD, the kiss between the characters cuts out within a few seconds, in contrast to the actual kiss that lasts approximately 10 seconds.
