Ex-gays want protection at Disney
October 14, 2009 in: Gay Rights
Here's an excerpt:
"Ex-Gay" groups are asking Disney stockholders to pass a shareholder resolution asking the Walt Disney Company to include the prohibition of discrimination based on ex-gay status in its sexual orientation policy and diversity training programs.
"The resolution cites the need for diversity and equality in the workplace," said Regina Griggs, executive director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX).
The supporting statement for the resolution explains that, "Disney's exclusion of ex-gays from its sexual orientation policy and programs reinforces the second-class status of ex-gays, and contributes to the negative perceptions and discrimination against former homosexuals."
Disney has not yet acted upon the resolution.....
