One Million Moms Protest Disney “Gay Days”

Updated: 13 May 2013 05:40:31 AM

One Million Moms, a division of the American Family Association has an agenda different from Disney when it comes to Orlando’s Walt Disney World’s unofficial “Gay Days.”

The American Family Association is known for threatening to boycott JC Penney after the chain hired Ellen Degeneres as its spokesperson.

The group’s website has set the first Saturday in June as the day when homosexuals, bisexuals and transvestites will be at the Magic Kingdom to celebrate the 23rd anniversary of Gay Days and wearing a variety of Gay day items including T-shirts.

The group is encouraging visitors to send an email to Disney’s CEO and other Disney management demanding that Disney representatives and security should maintain a family-friendly park and require proper conduct and dress code on a regular basis.

This is the first time there has been criticism at the annual event, but the Florida Family Association had threatened last year to protest the event when two planes carrying banners flew over the resort.

Their purpose is to warn families before paying money to Disney and to avoid exposing their children to Gay Day’s same-sex celebration and send a message that Disney’s promotion is wrong.

“Gay Days” has never been an officially sanctioned event by the Walt Disney Company, and they have no control over the celebration or who enters the park on that day.

The organizers report that 150,000 LGBT travelers visit the theme parks each year and employees treat it like any other day.
