Consternation at Disney Financial Grants

09/03/2022

The US based gay magazine the Advocate has said that there is every indication that the Disney Corporation will continue to finance anti-gay and anti-trans politicians in Florida, including those who were architechts of a piece of legislation restricting the discussion of LGBTQIA lives in schools. Opponents of the legislation say that it will cause immense harm to non-straight and non-cisgender students. One member of the Disney family, film maker Abigail Disney has spoken out about the corporation’s apparent indifference to the harm being caused by some Florida politicians. However,  Latondra Newton, Disney’s chief diversity officer, sent a message to all 195,000 employees calling the Florida bill “deeply troubling and heartbreaking,” and saying that the Disney corporate chair wants “to meet with leaders in our company’s LGBTQ+ community to discuss how Disney can best support these important and valued employees and cast members,” The Hollywood Reporter notes.
