Coming out with pride ... and Disney
Full Story: Coming out with pride ... and DisneyComing out with pride ... and Disney
This weekend marks the 2006 Come Out With Pride events for the gay community.... Worth noting from a local perspective is the sponsor of the eventís KidZone activities: Walt Disney World. The theme park has traditionally welcomed the gay community and even participated in the parade in past years -- but has just as traditionally gone kept its support relatively informal. This sponsorship suggests that's over.
Said Disney spokesman Bill Warren: "Our charitable focus as a company is on children and families, so the kids zone was a logical choice to sponsor. All a part of our company's high regard for diversity and inclusion as a key to our success."
