Good afternoon Bac; I was originally thinking of Roy O, with Roy E being a vague memory listed in some cartoons. Nothing I've read suggests that Roy E was Gay. He was married twice; he divorced his wife of 55 years over irreconcilable differences to marry a woman easily 30 years younger. They collaborated on a sailing documentary titled, Morning Light, the year before Roy passed away. While Disney theme parks host a Gay Day event, neither endorses the event as it's officially just another business day. Whether Roy E managed to distance himself from articles supporting the event or simply went along with them, I have not found his name ardently supporting Gay Rights. It's true that Disney owned the publishing company which published the above book, and Ellen worked for ABC at the time she "came out of the closet", which was owned by Disney at the time. Based on what I have read in the past hour, I'm beginning to wonder if my original post regarding Michael Eisener is accurate. Either way, Roy E. Disney ceased to have any direct influence as of Dec 16/09. He was the last family member to have any direct influence in the company. The largest city adjacent to me is Halifax. It hosts an annual Gay Pride Day, as do many other cities across the continent. I have never attended the event although people I know have. They are not Gay, but they are somewhat supportive of Gay Rights. At the end of the day, people around the world all have the same basic right: we have the right to be decent and upright citizens. There was only one perfect man, and we killed him on a cross.
