Walt Disney World to host world’s largest LGBTQ+ conference amid criticism from DeSantis

Walt Disney World will host the world’s “largest LGBTQ+” conference in September and again in 2024, a decision which was made in 2019, amid criticism from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has taken aim at the company in recent months for its political standing.

Disney will host the annual Out & Equal Workplace Summit, which is described as the “largest LGBTQ+ conference in the world” with more than 5,000 attendees, including executives and HR and DEI professionals and experts from the world’s largest companies, who are “all working for LGBTQ+ equality,” according to the organization’s website.
