America's largest retailer was among the corporate sponsors of recent homosexual "pride" events in New York City, including all-night parties and a vulgar parade down Fifth Avenue.

Wal-Mart gay pride NYC float

Activities the corporations sponsored last month included a "burlesque masquerade fantasy" on June 26 and a "VIP Rooftop Party" on June 27, the "NYC Pride" website reveals. A suggestive, school-themed party at the Hammerstein Ballroom, with male "bad teachers" and "hot cheerleaders" flown in from overseas, was also held on June 27.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality attended the June 28 "pride" parade. He tells OneNewsNow a Wal-Mart float was included in the event that featured public nudity and vulgarity – with children present.

"It's really a mirror into the households of homosexual-led households," LaBarbera says.

According to the pro-family activist, Wal-Mart was a major sponsor of the parade. OneNewsNow confirmed on the "NYC Pride" website (Caution: website has objectionable material) that the retailer is among the corporate "Platinum" sponsors of "Pride events" held by NYC Pride. Other sponsors at that level include Delta Airlines, AT&T, and Diet Coke. It's unclear from the website how much those sponsors donated for the "Platinum" designation.

Other major brands listed as NYC Pride sponsors (other than Platinum) include such recognizable names as Hilton Hotels, Bud Light, Netflix, Wells Fargo, PBS, MasterCard, and Amtrak.

LaBarbera, Peter

LaBarbera sees inconsistency in Wal-Mart's handling of issues considered controversial. He points out that despite sponsoring activities in support of the homosexual lifestyle, the retailer recently decided that items displaying the Confederate battle flag were too controversial to appear on its shelves.

"But apparently a homosexual parade, which is celebrating beyond homosexuality – they celebrated sadomasochism, lots of perverted behavior, even open nudity in this parade – apparently none of this was too controversial for Wal-Mart to be involved in sponsoring this parade," he adds.

LaBarbera encourages people to contact Wal-Mart to complain and to shop elsewhere.

OneNewsNow contacted Wal-Mart for comment but received no response.
