The Florida Family Association spent $7,000 to fly a large banner "warning" Disney World attendees of the annual Gay Day celebration at the Magic Kingdom, WESH-TV reports.
"Thousands of homosexuals, lesbians and transgenders will converge on Central Florida the first week of June to celebrate their immoral lifestyles," the group announced on its website in condemnation of Orlando Gay Days, which brings in millions of tourist dollars to the area each year.
The association also criticized Doubletree by Hilton Orlando for its official sponsorship of Gay Days: "Many American families are offended by the public celebration of such immoral and irresponsible behavior. They are also displeased with companies like Hilton that allow their corporate image and goodwill to legitimize these events and their associated immoral behavior. "
