Leaked videos expose Disney’s ‘not-so-secret gay agenda’ to indoctrinate children

Any lingering doubts about Disney’s social agenda were resolved Tuesday with the release of leaked excerpts from a private “all-hands meeting” on a Florida law to ban sexual proselytising in K-3 public schools, in which several officials of the entertainment giant openly declare their intentions to inculcate children with LGBTQ+ dogma through their film and television projects.

The ostensible subject of the conference was the Sunshine State’s recently enacted Parental Rights in Education Act, which prohibits schools from teaching children in kindergarten through third grade about transgenderism and other issues related to sexuality, limits discussions of sexuality for older children to “age-appropriate” content, and requires that parents be informed of any changes that may affect their children’s physical, emotional or mental well-being.

Left-wing activists and their allies in the media have misleadingly dubbed the law the “Say Nothing Act”, portraying it as a hateful attack on LGBT teachers and students and mocking the idea that it addresses a real problem, despite examples of teachers engaging in LGBT activism in the classroom.

Manhattan Institute member Christopher Rufo, best known for his leadership role against critical race theory in public education, shared clips from the meeting via Twitter.

Among the revelations are executive producer Latoya Raveneau, who boasts of a “not-at-all-secret gay agenda” of “adding queerness” to children’s programming; production coordinator Allen March, who explains that his team has a “tracker” to make sure they create a sufficient number of “gender non-conforming characters”, “canonical trans characters” and “canonical bisexual characters”; director of “diversity and inclusion” Vivian Ware explaining that the company has removed the terms “ladies”, “gents”, “boys” and “girls” from its theme parks to create “that magic moment” for gender non-conforming children; and much more.

One clip that has drawn particular attention shows Disney corporate president Karey Burke declaring that “as a mother [of] a transgender child and a pansexual child”, she supports having “many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories” and wants at least half of the company’s characters to be LGBTQIA and racial minorities.

Elsewhere at the conference, one of Disney’s outside activist partners, Nadine Smith of the left-wing group Equality Florida, falsely tells Disney’s LGBT employees that Florida’s Republican Governor Ron DeSantis and his chief spokesperson, Christina Pushaw, want to “erase you, “criminalise your existence” and “take your children away from you”.

In addition to the implied misrepresentations about the purpose and effects of the new law, the accusation is ironic in light of the fact that Pushaw was one of several conservative figures who generated controversy on the right earlier this month for offering kudos to gay conservative pundit Dave Rubin’s announcement that he and his “husband” had commissioned the conception of two children for themselves through surrogacy.

Once a unifying cultural institution, Disney has in recent years introduced left-wing politics into the army of entertainment properties it owns, from appeasing demands for LGBT “representation” in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to firing and publicly defaming conservative former Star Wars actress Gina Carano. Disney has also introduced LGBT themes in various children’s media, most recently with the confirmation of a same-sex kiss in the upcoming Toy Story Lightyear film.

Disney’s stance against the Florida law follows a revolt by the company’s left-wing activists, who staged walkouts in protest at Disney’s initial reaction to the law. Meanwhile, Disney’s more conservative employees have published an anonymous open letter denouncing the company’s internal climate of hostility towards “those of us whose political and religious views are not explicitly progressive”.

DeSantis, for his part, has responded defiantly, branding Disney as “fundamentally dishonest” hypocrites who “do not control this state”.

“You know what, if we … put in the bill that we were not allowed to have a curriculum that discussed the oppression of the Uighurs in China, Disney would have supported it in a second,” DeSantis said, a reference to the company’s much softer approach to the Chinese government and its much harsher treatment of minority groups.
