LGBTQ activists are calling for new strategies to convince corporate leaders not to cave in to opposing voices and chasten those who do in the face of public pressure.
Their call to action follows last week announcement by Traget that it had removed products and relocated Pride displays to the back of certain stores in response to public protest.

One pro-transgender mother claimed that the Target executives had caved to “terrorists.”
State Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco) a member of the LGBTQ legislative caucus, led the call for corporations to stand firm by pledging:
“We need a strategy on how to deal with corporations that are experiencing enormous pressure to throw LGBTQ people under the bus,” said California state Sen. Scott Wiener (D-San Francisco), a member of the LGBTQ legislative caucus.
He added: “We need to send a clear message to corporate America that if you’re our ally — if you are truly our ally — you need to be our ally, not just when it’s easy but also when it’s hard”
Breitbart reports: Target is just one corporate entity to have fallen under continued criticism over the past several weeks due to its overt promotion of woke gender ideology and the LGBTQ agenda, despite the fact those who identify as such make up a small percentage of the U.S. population.
Customers voted with their feet – and their wallets – and simply ignored the Target outlets across the country.
Concerns remain about the impact of Target’s Pride displays on children, said Victoria Cobb, president of The Family Foundation of Virginia, a conservative, faith-based organization in Richmond.
“Target is paying the price for telling kids to be discontent with their bodies, putting ideology ahead of the interests of investors, and creating a hostile store environment for parents with children,” Cobb said in a statement seen by AP.
