Surprise! One Million Moms, a division of the antigay American Family Association that recently threatened to boycott JC Penney after the retail chain hired Ellen DeGeneres to be its spokesperson, is now targeting Walt Disney World because of its unofficial event “Gay Days” tradition, HuffPost Gay Voices reports.
“The first Saturday in June, homosexuals, bisexuals and transvestites will be at the Magic Kingdom with an agenda and purpose different that what would be expected at Disney,” the group writes on its website. “Homosexuals will be celebrating the 23rd Gay Day wearing matching Gay Day merchandise, such as T-shirts. There will also be transvestites dressed in drag showing their support for the event.”
The website goes on to urge members to send an email to Disney’s CEO in protest of the event. “Disney has been irresponsible for far too long. Disney representatives and security need to maintain a family-friendly atmosphere and require proper conduct and dress code on a daily basis.” Read the full One Million Moms post here.
Although “Gay Days” is not an official Disney event, organizers say it draws more than 150,000 LGBT travelers to the theme parks every year. Read more about “Gay Days” here.
