The recent concern over Disney's Beauty and the Beast 'gay moment' may lead some to believe that Disney has just launched on a new campaign to promote homosexuality, but the company has been at it for many years already.  They've come out of the closet with their propaganda efforts lately as can be seen by their recent threat to pull filming in Georgia if the state backed a religious freedom bill.

But even in 1998, former Disney CEO Michael Eisner told a homosexual leader that a whopping 40 percent of the entertainment corporation’s employees were “gay,” according to a prominent LGBT activist caught on tape relaying the private conversation at a homosexual student event.

The revelation came from then-HRC Executive Director Elizabeth Birch, who keynoted an LGBT student conference at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Eisner corrected Birch when she told him that 30 percent of his employees were homosexual. This reporter attended and taped the event as an undercover investigator for Americans For Truth About Homosexuality (

Said Birch in her speech—excerpted by LifeSiteNews’ YouTube channel:

“Is there any press in the room?…Because some of these conversations are very private. But when I said to Michael Eisner, CEO of Disney, I said, 'Thirty percent of your employees are gay.' And he said, 'You are wrong, Elizabeth, it's 40 percent.’”

The audience at UC-Santa Cruz erupted in applause and laughter.

One wonders: if a full 40 percent of Disney employees were homosexual back in 1998, almost two decades ago–before the LGBT movement grew tremendously in power with the media, academia and the corporate world rallying behind it—what percentage of Disney employees identify as LGBTQ today?

Surely the enormous “gay” insider influence at the once-family-oriented company has not waned since then, as the current controversy over Disney’s inclusion of a scene intimating homosexual romance in its “Beauty and the Beast” remake testifies.
