Disney World to Cease Boy Scouts Support because of Homophobia
by Editorial Staff, in General , posted 24 April 2014

Walt Disney World will stop sponsoring a local American Boy Scouts group because of their homophobic attitude. For years now, Disney has a LGBT friendly reputation. For a number of years now, they organise a Gay Day for LGBTs and their family and children, and people can have a gay wedding ceremony on their site in the US and in Tokyo.

Disney World now announced no longer to sponsor any activities of the American Boy Scouts.

The homophobic attitude of its management is not according to Disney's policy. For years, the American Boy Scouts openly refused homosexuals. And even when it was revealed that a member or leader was gay, he was thrown out. And because these practises were in the news more and more, many protests against this form of discrimination were organised.

After a long meeting, the top of the Boy Scouts decided last year that homosexual members up to 18 would be allowed, but that leaders and people over 18 that are gay will be no longer welcome. However, some local groups were still refusing to accept under 18s as a member of the youth organisation.

According to a spokesperson, Disney World no longer wants to be a sponsor of a youth organisation that discriminates. In the past, several sponsors have stopped supporting local Boy Scouts groups for their homophobic attitude.
