Less than a week after the Disney Channel introduced the network’s first-ever same sex couple, the Walt Disney Company is partnering with an initiative to host a vacation for gay families.

According to a Jan. 30 report by The Blaze, Disney has officially attached its name to “Family Outfest,” a week-long vacation planned in Orlando this summer for gay, lesbian and transgender families. The event marks the first time the family entertainment company has officially attached its name to a gay event. The website advertising the event, which is slated for July, refers to Disney as the “main partner” for the event.

Last week, the Disney Channel series “Good Luck Charlie” made headlines with a controversial episode that featured a family with two moms. A Disney Channel spokesperson told TV Guide, "This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors. Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness."

But the group One Million Moms urged viewers to boycott the show. A message on the group’s website said: “Just because something may be legal or because some are choosing a lifestyle doesn't make it morally correct. Disney should stick to entertaining instead of pushing an agenda. Disney decided to be politically correct versus providing family-friendly programming.”

“Good Luck Charlie” will end its four season run on Feb. 16 with a one-hour finale episode.
