Did you know that Disney’s Grand California Hotel is hosting the Pacific Justice Institute’s annual gala on April 2? Dick Morris & Michelle Bachman are keynotes and VIP reception hosted by Focus on the Family.
Mickey is not pleased. It just so happens that April 2 is also mini-Gay Day at Disney (hah!) and the park will be replete with LGBT folks.
If Disney is going to continue to cal itself a welcoming place for LGBT people and our families, they need to know that hosting this group sends the exact opposite message.
Here are some links to PJI messaging about LGBT people and our families:
Please take a moment to contact Disney and let them know that we are very hurt by their decision to host these groups whose message is that there is something wrong with LGBT people and whose aim is to make sure LGBT people do not have equal rights.
You can call and email and let them know the following:
Disney Parks and Resorts have been a welcoming place for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people and their families. The Pacific Justice Institute has a proven track record of endorsing harmful rhetoric about LGBT people and families and opposing equality for all families. Therefore, hosting a Pacific Justice Institute event would contradict and call into question Disney’s ongoing commitment to creating positive experiences for all families and inclusion of LGBT people. We urge Disney Parks and Resorts to reconsider their involvement with this event which will contribute to harming families.
The contact number for booking meetings such at this Disneyland: (714) 520-7025.
Next up - Gay Day at Disney and a possible welcoming committee for PJI and Focus on the Family… Could the timing be any better???
