Conservative Catholic activists in Africa have warned the newly-appointed CEO of Disney to desist from promoting a lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBTQ) agenda in content meant for children.
Disney, a global leader in the entertainment industry, recently came under fire for what many conservatives consider its pro-gay agenda.
The company’s new CEO, Robert Iger, who was appointed Nov 20, has gotten a not too friendly reception in Africa. Members of CitizensGo Africa, the African branch of the far-right Catholic activist organization CitizenGo founded in Spain in 2013, have launched a petition warning Iger against injecting LGBTQ+ ideas into children’s content.Catholic activists in Africa join anti-Disney push over ‘pro-LGBTQ+’ agenda | Crux
