Walt Disney World Ends Its Support Of The Boy Scouts


Florida’s Walt Disney World has ended its support for the Boy Scouts of America due to their policy excluding gay scout leaders. The Boy Scouts will no longer be included in Disney’s “Ears To You” matching funds program, due to its discriminatory “18 and out” policy, which demands any gay scout leave the organization on his eighteenth birthday. It also prevents gay men from serving as troop leaders.

Disney’s Standards for Business Conduct states it will not allow:

“…any form of harassment or discrimination on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identification, national origin, age, marital status, covered veteran status, disability, pregnancy or any other basis prohibited by applicable law.”

In light of the Boy Scouts blatant discriminatory policy, Disney did not feel they could, in good conscience, reward the group with financial support.
