Disneyland Theme Parks announced an official gay pride event to be held this summer at its theme park in Paris.
The formerly family oriented theme park announced an official sponsorship of the annual gay “Magical Pride” event held at its Paris theme park, partnering with LGBT organizations who previously held events at the theme park unofficially.
According to the event’s official website, “For the first time, Disneyland Paris are making Magical Pride an official Disney event,” complete with a “Magical Pride Party taking place at Walt Disney Studios Park.”
The website explains that the event offers an opportunity to celebrate “diversity at the place where dreams come true,” and notes that the theme park will be privatized for the duration of the LGBT pride event.
This year’s event is also inviting LGBT couples to bring their children, and is partnering with the obscure LGBT blog “Daddy & Dad,” featuring two fathers raising their two sons, to help attract more families to the Disney sanctioned event.

Social media also reveals that in previous years, when the event was not considered official by Disney, the park changed its lighting, costumes, and decorations to rainbow colored lights and flags to welcome the event goers, with one post remarking “Picture this – Mickey and Minnie in rainbow get-up, glitter everywhere,” alongside an image from a previous year’s pride event.

Promotional material for the event promotes inclusiveness, stating all are welcome at the gay “Magical Pride” event, so long as they can financially make the expensive trip to France and afford admittance. Tickets for the 2019 event start at £259.00 and go as high as £1,829.00.
Virginia School District Stops Celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day Because of the “Racial Undertones” in His Books
It’s all so tiresome.
The Loudoun County School District in northern Virginia has stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day because of the “strong racial undertones” in some of his books.
“Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African Americans for sale captioned with offensive language,” the district wrote in a statement.
“Given this research, and LCPS’ focus on equity and culturally responsive instruction, LCPS provided this guidance to schools during the past couple of years to not connect Read Across America Day exclusively with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Dr. Seuss and his books are no longer the emphasis of ‘Read Across America Day’ in Loudoun County Public Schools,” the statement added.
To be clear, this does not mean that Loudoun County School District is outright banning Dr. Seuss’ books. They are still available for children to read in their libraries and classrooms.
Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the day of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and many schools across the country celebrate National Reading Month every March.
The National Education Association, which created National Reading Month and Read Across America Day, started to distance themselves from explicit promotion of Dr. Seuss in 2017 and now promotes non-white authors who write books about “racial justice,” “inclusivity,” and so on.
Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, worked as a political cartoonist in addition to illustrating and writing children’s books. Interestingly enough, Geisel was a passionate supporter of FDR and a lifelong liberal Democrat.
