Florida’s Board of Education has approved the expansion of the state’s infamous ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, effectively banning discussions of sexual orientation and gender identity across all grade levels.

The approval on 19 April came at the request of Republican governor Ron DeSantis, who is expected to launch a presidential campaign in the near future and has backed several anti-LGBTQ+ bills during his tenure.

The proposal is set to take effect after a procedural notice period that lasts about a month, an education department spokesman told AP.

Lessons on sexual orientation and gender identity from grades four through 12 will be banned entirely, unless they are required by existing state standards or as part of reproductive health instruction which students can choose not to take.
