Amidst Grooming Scandal, Disney Launches Kids LGBTQ Clothing Line


 

The Walt Disney Co. has developed an LGBTQ-themed apparel and accessory collection dubbed the “Disney Pride Collection” for children and adults and announced that they plan to contribute all profits through June 30 (Pride Month) to organizations that support “LGBTQIA+ adolescents and families” as it continues to fight Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law.

 

Rainbow-themed designs are imposed on renowned Disney trademarks such as Star Wars, Marvel, and Pixar in the goods, which is aimed at both children and adults. Some of the goods have messages like “Belong, Believe, Proud.”

 

 

 

As David Ng reports at Breitbart:

 

Disney said the new line was created by “LGBTQIA+ employees and allies” and represents “their incredible contributions and place at the heart of the company.”

“We stand in solidarity with our LGBTQIA+ community everywhere,” the company said.

The Disney Pride Collection, which is being sold online as well as at Disney parks and other retailers around the country, is actually a rebranding of Disney’s gay, rainbow-themed apparel that it has sold since 2018.

Among the charities Disney will donate profits to include a slate of California-based groups, including the Los Angeles LGBT Center, LGBTQ Center Orange County, and the San Francisco LGBT Center. Other groups receiving money are The Trevor Project and the Ali Forney Center, both of which are focused on gay youth.

The new fashion line comes as Disney continues to wage its war against Florida’s Parental Rights in Education law, which bars the teaching of sexual orientation and gender ideology to children in kindergarten through third grade. The company has vowed to continue fighting the law despite strong bi-partisan support among Florida voters.

 

 

Following Disney’s announcement to stop the legislation, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R) withdrew Disney’s special self-governing status in Orlando, exposing the theme park to a slew of new regulations that could prove burdensome for Walt Disney Company.

I'm not as much of a "CoMiCs NeEd MoAr DiVeRsItY & iNcLuSiOn" advocate as my girlfriend often is, but we both love funny books, crispy bacon, straight bourbon and hip hop. Add yet, we never vote the same, so we cancel each other out... and that works perfectly in my book!
