through Chasten Buttigieg's criticisms, it's led to a staunch debate and a series of protests and walkouts by Florida students, civil rights groups, and faith-based organizations.Proponents of HB 1557 and SB 1834 — the House and Senate versions of the bill — argue that if passed, they would restrict inappropriate conversations about sex in classes.

As it heads to the desk of Florida governor Ron DeSantis, who has signaled he will sign the legislation into law, we break down the facts. What does the bill actually say?Since first being submitted, the "don't say gay" bills have had 37 amendments with only two passing.
