Disney World Won’t Warn Of ‘Gay Day’

Walt Disney World has decided not to post signs in its ticket windows on Saturday when tens of thousands of gays and lesbians are expected to visit the theme park in an annual celebration.

Last year, Disney put up “discreet signs” advising visitors that the event was under way, said Disney spokesman Bill Warren.

“While we didn’t think those signs were in any way discriminating, we just thought we’d treat this like any normal day at the park,” Warren said.

The fourth annual “Gay Day” last year drew an estimated 23,000 gays and organizers this year expect up to 50,000 people.

Last year’s celebration drew few complaints or protests.
