Raven-Symone Was One Of The Hundreds Of Disney Employees Who Walked Out In Protest Of Disney’s Inaction Regarding Florida’s Don’t Say Gay Bill
Today, The Disney Corporation is finally having to face the “exclusively gay moment” that live-action Beauty and The Beast director Bill Condon promised us several years ago, only now, that gay moment has an LGBTQIA+ posse and allies, and is threatening to become a movement. According to Forbes, hundreds of Disney employees staged a walkout today in opposition to Disney’s handling of Florida’s so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill which “bars instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity in kindergarten through third grade,” and would allow parents to sue school districts for any perceived infractions. 75 employees walked out and protested in front of Disney’s studios in Burbank, California, and another 100 protested outside of the Disney Animation Studios Building, also in Burbank. And if you’re saying to yourself “That’s so Raven!,” you’re absolutely right, because Raven-Symone also mounted a protest with cast and crew members of her current Disney show, Raven’s Home, as well. This all spells bad news for Disney CEO Bob Chapek who probably thought he could just pray the gay away as if that shit wasn’t already baked into Disney’s DNA.
