Home of Queer Shoppers

Uh-oh. After being dissed by Ford it looks like the diversity lovin' group over at the AFA are setting their sites on Wal*Mart. Seems an internal memo has been leaking regarding a seminar being held tomorrow that is called "Why Market to Gay America?"
The memo, dated December 8, notes that America's homosexual community has $610 billion in purchasing power, and that the seminar -- sponsored by Wal-Mart's Office of Diversity -- will "provide insight into the purchasing decisions of GLBT [gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender] customers."

Sharp says Wal-Mart has long been seen as a shopping place that supports family values. But now, he says, that image is in question.

"Basically what they're doing is they're giving their stamp of approval on homosexuality, recognizing it as a facet in America that deserves their support and their encouragement," he says. "And they want their business."

Sharp is calling on family advocates to contact Wal-Mart headquarters at 1-800-WALMART and make their concerns known about Friday's pro-homosexual seminar.

Color me clueless. I didn't even know Wal*Mart had an Office of Diversity. What have they been working on? Putting Barbie next to Ken on the same shelf?
