The Florida Family Association (FFA) has claimed that Parents and Friends of Lesbians And Gays (PFLAG) are a recruiting tool for homosexuals.

The FFA claimed that PFLAG is “an organisation that would encourage our youth to embrace a different sexual identity that may stay with them for life,” as part of a campaign to stop the Target retail chain advertising on the TeenNick channel’s Degrassi teen drama series.

“Not only is TeenNick affirming the homosexual and transgender lifestyles in the content of the program itself but also includes promotions during Degrassi which lead America’s youth toward, not away from, embracing these behaviors,” a FFA form email read.

The FFA attacked the inclusion of the PFLAG ads as well as those for The Trevor Project’s anti-suicide helpline, The Trevor Helpline. The FFA last found itself in the news when it hired an aeroplane to tow a banner warning people to avoid Disney World’s Gay Day.
