NBA star Dwyane Wade revealed that he moved from Florida due to the state’s anti-LGBTQ+ legislation. Over the last few years, the state’s conservative governor Ron DeSantis and his allies have targeted the LGBTQ+ community with hateful legislation.
From the disturbing ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law to the various bills attacking the rights of trans youth, the state’s conservative lawmakers are showing no signs of slowing down their anit-LGBTQ+ rhetoric.
During his recent appearance on Showtime’s Headliners with Rachel Nichols, Wade revealed that the aforementioned legislation was a factor in why he moved his family away from “The Sunshine State.” “That’s another reason why I don’t live in that state.
A lot of people don’t know that. I have to make decisions for my family, not just personal and individual decisions,” he explained.
