The African branch of the International Catholic activist organization, CitizenGo,  has launched a boycott campaign against Netflix in a bid to force the company’s CEO “to back down on LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) indoctrination” following the release of a children’s film that shows two girls kissing.

In a petition shared with ACI Africa on Wednesday, October 5, the activists find it “crazy” that a film intended for seven-year-olds has included a lesbian kiss.

“A Netflix children's series has included a lesbian kiss in a series aimed at 7-year-olds! Have we gone crazy?” the activists pose in their petition.

They add, in their call to action, “Write now to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and show your outrage. A lesbian kiss is absolutely inappropriate for 7-year-olds. As long as he doesn't back down on LGBT indoctrination in children's series, I will support this boycott campaign!”

The 2022 series, Jurassic World (Camp Cretaceous in Spanish) narrates the adventures of a group of teenagers abandoned on Isla Nublar, evacuated after the events of Jurassic World 2015.


In the 9th episode of season 5, Yazz (a girl) reveals to Sammy (a girl) how she feels about her and they end up kissing.

Subsequently, both their friends and their families support their lesbian relationship “because of how supposedly happy the two girlfriends are, as they like to call themselves,” the Catholic activists narrate.

“As you can imagine, the issue has unleashed a wave of outrage around the world. If we parents can't have peace of mind when our children watch a series inappropriate for them, we're simply not going to take that risk anymore,” they say.

“The ball is in Netflix's court,” the members of CitizenGo say, and add, “It has to decide whether to follow the LGBT agenda or the families' agenda.”

The Catholic activists note that at the moment “betting on the LGBT agenda doesn't seem to have gone very well.”

They say that the LGBT agenda has lost two-thirds of its value since October last year. They add the agenda “is at the same levels as before the pandemic, as if it had missed the opportunity of confinements.”

In their demand to Mr. Reed Hastings, the Catholic activists call on the Netflix CEO to choose between promoting family values and pursuing the LGBT agenda, noting that the two do not go hand in hand.

 “Mr. Reed Hastings, decide whether you want to pursue the LGBT agenda or the family agenda. They are not compatible,” they say.
