The decision to retract her job offer was unanimous from the Board of Directors, according to a release from One Orlando Alliance. Todd sent the tweet after one of Ivey's GOP gubernatorial challengers criticized her for giving funding to an LGBTQ nonprofit, to which Ivey responded that she "certainly didn't agree" with the organization's values. "We strongly believe that coming out is a personal choice and we do not support involuntarily outing", Foster said.

Ivey, who is up for election this year, branded the claim a "disgusting lie" - and Todd suffered a sustained backlash in the wake of the comments.

Todd, who is openly gay, posted messages to Facebook and Twitter, saying that she was "sick of closeted elected officials".

Gov. Ivey and her campaign immediately reacted to the tweet, calling it a "bald-faced lie" and denying she is gay.

"Our Executive Director needs to lead our mission-driven efforts and exemplify our values - in all aspects of their everyday life", Foster said. Its mission is to "create a safe, welcoming and inclusive community for all LGBTQ+ people".

"This has been a challenging situation".

But Todd is standing by her actions. "We admire her many decades of exemplary service and believe that, with the right opportunity, Ms. Todd will continue to use her many talents to make significant progress advocating for justice and equality".

Todd made the tweet Tuesday evening.

Tweeted Todd on Wednesday: "Will someone out her for God's sake.... I'll catch some flak for it, but I feel a responsibility - not as the "head queer" - to hold people accountable".

"I think if there's any motivation you can find it has to be associated with those who are not getting any traction and they're just desperate for media attention, any way they can get it".
