A young woman who identified herself as a Disneyland “cast member” told hundreds of protesters outside Disney’s headquarters in Burbank, California to keep up the fight.
“I’m a cast member here, for Disneyland actually,” she said Wednesday night. “I’ve been with them for quite a long time and it has gotten very political and it’s gotten very hard to be who you are. It’s gotten very hard to be someone who has conservative values.”
She referred to the company’s decision to fight a Florida law that banned schools from teaching grade-schoolers about sexual behavior.
“Someone who believes in the right to choose, someone who believes that it’s okay to stand up for righteousness. It is okay to stand up for righteousness,” she said. “Any Disney cast members that are afraid to be bold, that are afraid to be courageous, stand up. It’s okay. You’re not alone.”
