The Disneyland "Gay Day," an event in which gays and lesbians gather at the company's family-oriented theme parks, crossed the Atlantic this weekend. Annual Gay Days have attracted thousands of gays and lesbians to Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla., since their launch in 1991 but have angered religious conservatives who consider homosexuality immoral. On Saturday a similar event took place not only at Disneyland's Anaheim, Calif., theme park but also at Disneyland Paris, with participants mobilized by Dutch magazine Gay Krant, which told them to wear white T-shirts so they could recognize each other. Park operator Euro Disney, majority-owned by the Walt Disney Co., said it did not organize the event--the first of its kind in Europe--or any special related events and that the guests were treated the same as any others. Neither it nor Gay Krant had a figure on the number of participants.
