Hate group stages boycott of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade – By David Badash (The New Civil Rights Movement) / Nov 18, 2023
An anti-LGBTQ hate group is waging a boycott of the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, urging their supporters to sign a petition that claims the 99-year old event is “pushing on families…the LGBTQ agenda,” which it is calling “indoctrination.”
One Million Moms, an offshoot of the American Family Association, a Southern Poverty Law Center-designated anti-LGBTQ hate group, boasts 101,000 Facebook followers. Its petition has 35,037 signatories, after The New York Times reported on the boycott.
The boycott is “over performances by nonbinary Broadway actors,” The Times reports, “Alex Newell, the Tony Award-winning performer who stars as Lulu in ‘Shucked,’ and Justin David Sullivan, who plays May in the musical ‘& Juliet.’ Both are likely to take part in musical acts during the event, along with hundreds of other performers from Broadway and elsewhere.”
