Disney Heir Comes Out As Transgender
A great-nephew of Walt Disney and a co-founder of the Walt-Disney Co has come out as transgender. As the first Disney heir to publicly come out‚ she apologises for not speaking out more against Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' bill. Disney has condemned anti-LGBTQ laws‚ and she's also a donor to an LGBT+ advocacy group.
Charlee Disney heir comes out as transgender
The great-nephew of Walt Disney‚ co-founder of the Walt Disney Co.‚ has come out as transgender. He's publicly acknowledged the child‚ Charlee Disney‚ is transgender. His family has pledged $500‚000 to support the Human Rights Campaign‚ the nation's largest LGBTQ+ advocacy group. In a recent Los Angeles Times interview‚ Disney outlined his intentions. The great-niece of Walt Disney has been an outspoken advocate for the LGBT community in Florida‚ as well as a spokesperson for the LGBT community. Her family's legacy is rich and she is a successful high school teacher. Despite her family ties‚ her family has never revealed how much money she earns. Although she's publicly out as transgender‚ she hasn't appeared in any Disney movies. While she initially came out as gay and later identified as transgender four years ago‚ her mother told the Los Angeles Times that the Disney Co. was not initially opposed to the bill‚ but later changed its position on the controversial law that bans teaching children about gender identity and sexual orientation. Her mother explained that her daughter was a victim of this legislation because she wasn't exposed to role models who were transgender and she didn't have the luxury of being a role model in the LGBT community.
She apologises for not doing more to speak out against Florida's 'Don't Say Gay' bill
The Walt Disney Company is taking a hiatus on political donations in Florida after being criticized for its silence on a state bill that bans the teaching of sexual orientation in public schools. The 'Don't Say Gay' law‚ which was signed into law by former Florida Gov. Claude Kirk in 1967‚ is the latest example of Florida's 'hateful' approach to LGBT issues. Disney has faced a backlash from progressive customers and employees for failing to denounce the bill‚ despite the company's contributions to the Republican Party. A number of Disney employees‚ including CEO Bob Chapek‚ have spoken out in support of the LGBTQ community in Florida. The bill's supporters include Republican legislators who say parents should talk to their children about gender issues. It is expected to pass as law by Governor DeSantis‚ who has apologised for not doing more. The Disney heir also announced that he will cease political donations in Florida and support LGBT advocacy groups in other states. A Disney heir has apologised for his company's lukewarm response to the Florida 'Don't Say Gay' bill. Disney exec Bob Chapek also signed a Human Rights Campaign statement against the bill. The company also pledged $5 million to LGBTQ+ rights organizations. But Chapek has since said that the company will no longer give any money to HRC. A letter from LGBTQ+ Disney employees to Chapek and other companies asking them to take a stand against harmful Republican legislation was sent to the Walt Disney Co. on February 28. The letter requested that the CEO speak out against the 'Don't Say Gay' bill and Governor Greg Abbott's attempt to criminalize parents of transgender children. The Walt Disney Company has now retracted its initial response to the 'Don't Say Gay' bill by saying that it will donate $5 million to groups protecting LGBTQ+ rights. It's a move that has drawn criticism from some Disney employees for its lack of openness to LGBT people. However‚ it remains to be seen whether this decision is enough to counteract the bill.
She condemns anti-LGBTQ laws
A young Disney heir is blaming his parents for not doing enough for the LGBT community. In an email to Human Rights Campaign staff‚ Roy P. Disney explained that he was shocked to hear about Florida's Don't Say Gay law. He also apologised for not doing more for the LGBT community‚ and said he would match donations to the Human Rights Campaign up to $500‚000. Disney is under fire from conservative employees‚ who were angry over the company's move. Several of their employees are pro-gun activists‚ so the move isn't surprising. And Roy Disney's decision to back away from the law was carefully planned. He told employees he wouldn't accept donations until Disney made meaningful progress for LGBTQ+ rights. The Disney heir has recently come out as transgender and apologised for not doing more to support the LGBTQ community. The company's position has come under fire after the Orlando Sentinel reported that it had donated millions to the 'Don't Say Gay' bill. Disney CEO Bob Chapek responded in an internal memo that he stands with LGBTQ employees and does not condone the law. Disney later apologized for their first statement. Charlee also spoke out against the 'Don't Say Gay' bill‚ which prevents school personnel from discussing issues surrounding gender identity and sexual orientation in elementary and secondary schools. The law passed on March 28. Charlee and her family have received tremendous support and have apologized for their inaction. However‚ the transition to becoming a transgender has not been easy.
She apologises for donating to sponsor of Parental Rights in Education bill
The halt in Disney political donations in Florida comes after the company came under fire for failing to speak out against the controversial 'don't say gay' state law. The bill is intended to prevent public school children from discussing issues relating to LGBTQ identity. It has already been signed into law by Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis‚ but the company is still defending its silence. In recent days‚ Disney has faced a backlash from progressives for failing to denounce the 'Don't Say Gay' law‚ a bill that prohibits schools from discussing sexual orientation or gender identity in the classroom. After passing the Florida House and Senate‚ the bill is heading to Gov. Ron DeSantis' desk. In response‚ Disney CEO Bob Chapek met with the LGBTQ+ leadership of the company to discuss the bill. Among the celebrities whose recent comments on LGBT issues have sparked outrage are the great-nephew of Walt Disney. His brother and nephew have publicly come out as transgender and apologized for not doing more to prevent the bill from passing into law. In a staff email‚ Chapek also apologized for not doing more to stop the bill from becoming law. A recent story in the media about a Florida 'don't say gay' bill has prompted a backlash from some Hollywood figures. The bill‚ which was signed into law in March‚ bans discussions about gay or transgender issues in public schools. It is widely believed that the legislation is designed to enshroud children with fear and stigma surrounding their sexual orientation. Chapek has since become Disney CEO in February 2020. Since the announcement‚ he has avoided speaking out on political issues‚ citing the fact that the bill has a liberal reputation. Disney's long history of treating its LGBTQ employees well includes offering health benefits to same-sex partners since 1995. It has also hosted Gay Days at Disney's Coronado Springs Resort unofficially for years. While Disney never authorized the events‚ it did nothing to prevent them.
