    Disney is an EOE. A cast member's sexuality is irrelevant to the job.

    The Disney Company is based in California and must abide with CA labor laws. No CA company can discriminate on the basis of race, sex, religion, disability, or sexual orientation.

    However, the Disney company also has policies on their books which allow the partners of gay employees to obtain health coverage and other perks that straight couples get. When the Southern Baptists boycotted Disney (one of Disney's most profitable years ever) Disney stood up for their policy and continued to support all of their employees.

    As an HR manager, sexuality is not something that even enters my mind when I am interviewing. I am more interested in their past job experience and skills.

    They would be sued big time if they did...(just like any other company)

    I'm glad to see that they offer partners benefits.
