Disney Could Single-Handedly Stop Georgia’s Religious Liberty Bill From Passing By Threatening To Pull Their Marvel Movies From The State!

The House of Mouse may need to start looking for a new address…

Georgia isn’t exactly known for being the most LGBT-friendly state in the country, but things could soon be getting a lot worse for our queer family down South.

That’s because the Peach State is currently entertaining a religious liberty bill that would make it legal for religious businesses and other organizations to deny services to same-sex couples, similar to Indiana’s ridiculous law from last year.

Luckily, Gov. Nathan Deal has a lot to think about before he signs the bill… because Disney and Marvel Studios just threatened to move out of the state if the discriminatory legislation were to pass, saying:

“Disney and Marvel are inclusive companies, and although we have had great experiences filming in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere should any legislation allowing discriminatory practices be signed into state law.”

Yasssss, Mickey Mouse, work!

Disney famously relocated to Atlanta back in 2014 and has already filmed large parts of Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 at Pinewood Studios… with Avengers: Infinity War Parts 1 and 2 coming up next!

So the fact that they’d be willing to move is huge!!!

We’re so happy to be living in a time when a company targeted at kids can openly stand up for gay rights!
