As Disney faces continued fallout over its commitment to fighting Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill and defending the LGBT agenda, a leaked video reveals officials discussing plans of “adding queerness” to children’s programming.

The video captures an “all-hands meeting” over Zoom late last month as the company was working to respond to criticism from the LGBT community and the media over its initial silence in reaction to the bill.

It was obtained by writer Christopher Rufo of City Journal and the Manhattan Institute, a top critic of what conservatives call “woke” ideology within schools and popular culture, The Christian Post reports.

The Walt Disney Company, which operates the massive amusement park complex Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida, made a decided stand against Governor Ron DeSantis’ sex ed bill, which prohibits sexuality instruction in younger grades and limits it to age-appropriate content in older grades.

The newly signed law has been criticized by LGBT activists as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, although the text of the legislation does not single out homosexuality or transgenderism.

Disney, under the pressure of activists and employees who were outraged over a lack of response from the historically pro-LGBT company, has emphasized its opposition to the law and doubled down on a commitment to infusing LGBT characters into its productions, prompting backlash from conservatives and families upset that the well-loved children’s entertainment giant has opted so decidedly to “go woke.”

In the leaked video, which was posted to Twitter, Latoya Raveneau, a Disney executive producer, praised the “Proud Family” reboot for taking up the mantel of her “not-at-all secret gay agenda.”

Disney President of General Entertainment Karey Burke, who has publicly vowed to increase the number of LGBT characters in children’s productions, touted her status as the mother of “two queer children,” that is, “one transgender child and one pansexual child,” told staffers that she wants to ensure there are “many, many, many LGBTQIA characters in our stories.”

In another video, Allen March, a production coordinator for the series “Moon Girl,” discussed his development of “a tracker” for background characters to ensure they achieve the “full breadth of expression” and also identified what he views as the need for “canonical trans characters, canonical asexual characters, [and] canonical bisexual characters” to appear in “stories where they can … be their whole selves.”

In a separate clip, March also acknowledged that children get “all of this information from media of what is normal” and that there is “a lot of power to that.”

In other videos, Disney officials discussed how the park had eliminated greeting visitors as “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls” while others slammed the Florida bill as an attempt to “erase” and “demonize” the LGBT.
