Right Wing Group Embraces Display Of Gays Kissing

Tallahassee, Florida - It wasn't the usual outdoor display of pictures people associate with a fundamentalist Christian group, but the ultra right wing Christian Action Network says the public needs to be shocked into seeing what really goes on at Gay Days at Disney World.

The Network, which has protested at Gay Days for the past few years and last year attempted a flyover with a plane carrying a banner denouncing homosexuality, set up a show and tell display in the courtyard of the Florida Capitol Friday demanding the legislature step in and stop the annual event.

The exhibit featured posters allegedly taken inside the park during last year's Gay Days showing shirtless gay men holding hands and kissing. The group also produced a video called “Gay Days at Disney Gone Wild”. In some scenes it appeared men were naked and engaging in sex.

The group has been filming the annual event since 1999 and at least one portion of the video was several years old although Christian Action Network claimed it was taken last year.

“It’s time for state legislators to see the type of depravity taking place during this annual event during ‘Gay Days at Walt Disney World,’” said Martin Mawyer, president of the Christian Action Network.

This year's Gay Days will take place June 1 thru 7 at the Orlando resort.

“It is our hope that state legislators will put the pressure on State Attorney General Charlie Crist and Orlando law enforcement officials to clean-up the obscenity and indecency that occurs,” Mawyer said.
