Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill has been amended with a requirement for schools to out students once they learn of them being LGBTQ+.
The bill, which is part of a Parental Rights in Education proposal, was altered by Rep Joe Harding on 18 February. His amendment states that “the school principal or his or her designee shall develop a plan, using all available governmental resources, to disclose such information within [six] weeks after the decision to withhold such information from the parent.” This would be done “through an open dialogue in a safe, supportive, and judgement-free environment that respects the parent-child relationship and protects the mental, emotional, and physical well-being of the student,” the amendment says.
LGBTQ+ activists are fearful that if House Bill 1557 and its companion Senate Bill 1834 are signed into law, they could have the power to totally limit any discussions or lessons on identity, the community’s history and the oppression it has faced – prompting it’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ nickname.
