Comcast-NBCU Bankrolls Gay Task Force Weekend in D.C.

Here goes Comcast-NBCUniversal again in doling out its “diversity” dollars for the Left. They are a “platinum sponsor” for this weekend’s “Pink & Purple Weekend” in Washington D.C. for the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force. The NGLTF isn’t just for the gay agenda, but the whole left-wing agenda – for example, it’s pushing immigration reform.

“Opinion leaders and decision-makers will attend this unique weekend of events that honor community leaders who push LGBT equality forward, educate local activists and celebrate the diversity of LGBT people,” they write.

A platinum sponsor contributes at least $10,000 and receives “A one (1)-year membership in the Ambassador’s Circle of the Task Force’s Leadership Council.”

NGLTF tells potential sponsors that supporting this event "is a key opportunity for your organization to stand out as a leading supporter for the LGBT community... As a supporter, you indicate that your organization is also committed to engaging and empowering the LGBT and broader diversity community at that grassroots level."

CBS-owned Showtime is a “National Corporate Partner” of this activist group.
