Creates Transgender “Bliss Beach” during Riptide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark event
One Magical Weekend, one of the largest LGBTQ+ yearly gatherings, held at Walt Disney World® Resorts in Orlando the first weekend of every June, is proud to announce that Bliss CARES has signed on as a sponsor to present “Bliss Beach” during the Riptide at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon Waterpark event on Friday, May 31, 2019.
“The addition of Bliss Beach to Riptide will create a space where our transgender brothers and sisters can ‘Mix, Mingle and Relax’ with other transgender individuals from around the world” said Tom Christ of One Magical Weekend. “Transgender individuals are being disparaged all around the world, even here in the US where they are currently under fire for wanting nothing more than to show their patriotism and fight for our country. We want them to know they are welcome and loved, not only at our Riptide event, but all our events during the weekend.”
To support Bliss Beach, One Magical Weekend is offering a special promotion for all Transgender groups around the country. If your group would like to participate, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions and to get your special promo link. Your members will be able to buy a general admission ticket at the regular price and get one general admission ticket absolutely free (BOGO). Limited time offer.
