Left-wing Human Rights Campaign revokes Fox's status as a 'preferred LGBTQ' employer over accurate coverage of Disney's 'not-at all-secret gay agenda'

On Friday, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a scandal-ridden, leftwing advocacy group, revoked Fox Corporation's — the parent company of Fox News — status as a "preferred LGBTQ friendly employer" and condemned the company's recent news coverage of the LGBTQ agenda.

CNN Business reported that the move to revoke Fox's standing came in response as "Fox News relentlessly attacks Disney for the company's belated opposition to the 'Don't Say Gay' law and for the entertainment giant's efforts to incorporate the LGBTQ community into its films and other projects."

In a statement explaining the decision, HRC said, "Fox News has a history of sharing misinformation and disinformation about the LGBTQ+."

"We know from our own research, which we put out earlier this week, what their disinformation and misinformation mean for the LGBTQ+ community: perpetuating stigma and marginalization of transgender and non-binary people," HRC continued. "At a time when transgender people – especially transgender children – are under attack in statehouses across the country, rhetoric has real consequences."

Aryn Fields, the HRC press secretary, said, "I can confirm that Fox Corporation no longer has a score of 100 on the Corporate Equality Index."

"We can no longer allow Fox Corporation to maintain its score if Fox News personalities and contributors continue to deny the existence of transgender people, minimize the violence transgender individuals face, refer to parents of LGBTQ+ youth as perverts, or equate leaders of LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusions efforts with sex offenders," Fields said. "Each of these actions happened in the last 72 hours. Enough is enough."

According to CNN, Fox News has "in recent days portrayed Disney as a 'creepy' company aiming to sexualize young children and indoctrinate them with a radical LGBTQ agenda."

However, recently leaked footage from an "all-hands" meeting inside the Walt Disney Company shows that Disney executives and creative leads are very focused on laundering LGBTQ+ narratives into content for children.

Evidently, the misinformation and disinformation that HRC accused Fox of spreading was, in fact, accurate.

During the meeting, Latoya Raveneau, the creative lead for projects like "Rise Up, Sing Out" and "The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder," indicated that she was surprised that Disney was so accommodating of her efforts to include a "gay agenda" into children's content.

Raveneau said, "In my little pocket of Proud Family Disney TVA, the showrunners were super welcoming. [SVP] Meredith Roberts and our leadership over there has been so welcoming to my not-at-all-secret gay agenda."

Similarly, Karey Burke, Disney's corporate president, lamented the fact that Disney isn't doing enough to put the sexuality of gay characters at the forefront of their stories.

She said, "We have many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories, and yet we don't have enough leads and narratives in which gay characters just get to be gay characters."
