(LifeSiteNews) – A Disney executive boasted at a recent virtual townhall about how she previously had ensured Freeform, a TV station owned by the company, focused on pushing the LGBT agenda in its programming.
Karey Burke, now the president of general entertainment content, said her team at Freeform “jumped up and down” to support “inclusion.”
“When I was at Freeform, it was very much in the brand ethos of Freeform to be the tip of the spear when it comes to inclusion,” Burke said. She directed her comments at colleague Latoya Raveneau, who said during the townhall that is she is a “bi-romantic asexual.”
NEW: Disney corporate president Karey Burke, the “mother of two queer children,” says the company has been “targeting Gen Z and millennials” with LGBTQIA+ “inclusion” content. Her son told her that “Gen Z is 30-40% queerer” and that Disney “better get with it.” pic.twitter.com/CYYD7NqKZg

“And we, like you, Latoya, we jumped up and down, we celebrated that,” Burke said. In a separate clip, also posted by Christopher Rufo, Burke said she wants 50 percent of Disney characters to be racial minorities or LGBT.
SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade. *Anyone - no matter where you reside - can sign this petition!
For protecting the innocence of his state's youngest schoolchildren and standing up to the bullies in the LGBT lobby, Governor Ron DeSantis has predictably been on the receiving end of sustained attacks from LGBT activists and their numerous allies in the leftist mainstream media.
And now, the Disney Corporation - one of Florida's biggest employers - has decided to interfere in politics and pick a fight with DeSantis over the new law.
BUT, Florida parents, and parents across the country, are overjoyed that a governor is finally taking seriously their concerns about the early sexualization of our nation's children!
SIGN, THANK, and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis with this petition which will be delivered to Governor DeSantis' office and CC'ed to Disney, and which tells the Governor that we thank him for, and will stand with him in, protecting our schoolchildren from LGBT indoctrination.
This common sense legislation, known as the Parental Rights in Education Act, prohibits instruction pertaining to sexual orientation, "gender identity" and transgenderism in Kindergarten through 3rd Grade classrooms across the state of Florida.
And, the new law also puts stronger limits on such discussions for older children, frustrating a primary tenet of the radical left's plan to encroach upon impressionable young minds.
Media talking heads and political opponents, ranging from radical LGBT activist groups to morally corrupt corporations like Disney, dubbed HB 1557 the "Don't Say Gay" Bill.
But, the truth is that such sensitive, personal subjects are not the job of schools to cover, but the job of parents alone, who, under the bill, would be allowed to take legal action against school districts that violate its provisions.
By their hateful reaction to the bill (now law) and to Governor DeSantis, one can only assume that Disney actually despises parents and their role as the primary educator of their children, especially in, but not limited to, areas of sexual conduct and morals.
Indeed, the extreme volume of manufactured outrage on this particular piece of legislation reveals the following significant nugget of information: one of the seminal means the LGBT "community" counts on to continue attracting people into their ranks, or as so-called "allies," is by brainwashing little, unsuspecting children without their, or their parents', consent.
We know it, and they know it. And, finally, someone is doing something about it.
SIGN, THANK and STAND with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis who is being attacked by Disney for signing a new law which prohibits sexual indoctrination of schoolchildren from Kindergarten to 3rd Grade.
Children's innocence is worth it and Disney, and its chairman Bob Chapek, should be ashamed of themselves for threatening to interfere in state politics because they are offended that children's minds will no longer be violated.
We must encourage people like Governor DeSantis and the Florida Legislature not to be blackmailed and not to be afraid...
If Disney wants to escalate things, then conservative and Christian parents might be finally persuaded not to visit Disneyland and Disney World, nor buy Disney products, nor watch Disney films.
Conservatives and Christians, and right-thinking people from all walks of life, need to start playing hardball with the likes of Disney.
We saw what happens when parents show their power in Virginia last year, so any further action on this matter by Florida Democrats and their allies in Disney’s executive leadership will be at their own peril.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition to THANK and STAND WITH Governor Ron DeSantis for protecting children from LGBT propaganda, and from Disney's bullying, slurs and legal threats.

“Nobody stopped us and it felt great. In part, I think nobody stopped us because we were targeting Gen Z and millennials,” Burke said. “We were targeting a younger, I think, more open-minded – and now we know, as my son texted me this morning, ‘Gen Z is 30-40% queerer than the other generations, Mom, so Disney better get with it.'”
Whether or not Burke’s “son” is really male is unclear. That’s because she also said at the townhall that she has “two queer children…one transgender child…and one pansexual child.” She has five children in total.

The Washington Examiner noted how Freeform has been named the “Gayest Network on Television.” It previously operated under the name ABC Family.
“Disney has worked to appeal to the LGBT community through some of its lesser-known platforms for several years,” the Examiner reported. “Freeform, previously known as ABC Family, was declared the ‘Gayest Network on Television’ by GLAAD in 2018. Freeform has released multiple LGBT-focused programs since 2018, including The Thing About Harry and Everything’s Going to Be Okay.”
The entertainment company told employees at the virtual townhall that it will help not only them, but their children, pay for genital and chemical mutilation.
“The other big area is gender identity and expression, so doing all of this work to ensure that our employees and cast can express their gender here authentically and proudly at the company,” one employee said during the employee meeting.
“So, you know, coming up with guides on how to change your photo, information about pronouns, working with our benefits team to give information about gender affirmation procedures both for our employees who are transitioning and trans, but also our employees who have kids who are transitioning,” he said.
LGBT activists have pressured the company for not doing enough to stop Florida’s anti-grooming law.
