Annual GLAAD Report Gives Poor Grades To Every Major Film Studios For “Lack Of LGBTQ Representation” In Movies.
This decision was made in direct response to Disney’s attempt to enter politics by opposing the state of Florida’s Parental Rights in Education Law, which bans the teaching of sexuality and transgenderism to children between kindergarten through third grade.
“No company that chooses silence over allyship should receive high scores from LGBTQ organizations while nearly 200 anti-LGBTQ bills advance in states around the country, often targeting transgender youth,” said GLAAD CEO & President Sarah Kate Ellis at the time. “Corporations need to be held accountable for funding politicians that harm LGBTQ people, including their own employees, and for inaction on legislation that they can help defeat.”
Okay, I can’t believe I’m saying this but that statement is deeply unfair to the American film industry and Disney Studios in particular.
They have valiantly promoted LGBTASDFQWERTY invariably at deep cost to their box office revenue, merchandise sales, and stockmarket value. It is deeply unfair not to mention flat fucking crazy of GLAAD to insist they didn’t do enough.
Just because none of you went to see Lightyear, Strange World, or Bros either doesn’t mean the studio didn’t release them.
Try going to the movies for a change instead of Broadway!
