Roy O. Disney’s Grandson Pledges Large Donation for Human Rights Campaign After Child Comes Out as Transgender

Last week, Roy P. Disney (Walt’s Grand-nephew and grandson to Roy O. Disney) and his family announced they would match up to $500,000 in donations to the Human Rights Campaign. Their child, Charlee Cora, recently came out as Transgender.

“Equality matters deeply to us,” Roy wrote in an appeal, “especially because our child, Charlee, is transgender and a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community.”

Charlee, 30, is a high school biology and environmental science teacher. The family was frustrated by Disney’s response to Florida’s Parental Rights in Education bill.
