Marvel stands with the LGBT communities following the passing of controversial US bill

Republicans in Florida recently passed what opponents have dubbed the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill which limits teaching on gender identity to children.

Marvel Studios says it “strongly denounces” any legislation that affects the rights of the LGBT community, following the passing of a controversial bill by US politicians.

Republicans in Florida recently passed what opponents have dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” bill which limits teaching about sexual orientation and gender identity to young children in the state.

The superhero franchise said it “proudly” stood with the community and pledged to continue its support and allyship.

It comes as The Walt Disney Company, which owns Marvel, received heavy criticism for not using its vast influence in the state to try to quash the bill.

Disney chief executive Bob Chapek later apologised for the company’s silence on the matter and suspended Disney’s political donations in Florida earlier this week.

 

A statement put out by Marvel Studios online read: “We strongly denounce any and ALL legislation that infringes on the basic human rights of the LGBTQIA+ community.
