Pete Buttigieg, was among many slamming Florida governor Ron DeSantis for the state’s expansion of its ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law yesterday.The controversial law, officially known as the ‘Parental Rights In Education’ bill, came into effect last year.

It was aimed at kindergarten through to third grade. Yesterday, the Florida Board of Education approved its expansion to years 4 to 12.

The board is full of DeSantis appointees. The bill prohibits the discussion of any LGBTQ topics in the classroom.The expansion stipulates teachers “shall not intentionally provide classroom instruction to students in grades 4 through 12 on sexual orientation or gender identity unless such instruction is … expressly required by state academic standards.”Chasten, who has recently penned a book for young adults, slammed suggestions DeSantis was doing what’s best for kids.“DeSantis and the FL Board of Ed know exactly what they’re doing.

Legislation like this will worsen already bleak mental health numbers amongst vulnerable youth. Of all the issues facing Floridians, why deny the existence of LGBTQ people?
