[The bill] sends a terrible message to our youth, that there is something so wrong, so inappropriate, so dangerous about this topic that we have to censor it from classroom instruction,” said Rep.

Carlos Guillermo Smith, the first Latino LGBTQ+ Democrat to serve in the Florida legislature.“I want to make sure that for those LGBTQ youth in Florida and around the country and in the world who are watching, I want to make sure that they know this: You are loved, you are supported, and we will wake up every single day to fight for you because you are worth fighting for.”  A post shared by Logo (@logotv)The ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, which allows parents to sue schools that ‘promote’ LGBTQ+ topics such as sexual orientation or gender identity, was recently amended so that teachers will not be forced to ‘out’ their LGBTQ+ students to their parents.

This was an amendment previously proposed by State Rep. Joe Harding, but it was withdrawn earlier this week before it was passed by the House of Representatives.“With these extreme and harmful bills, a majority of Florida Republican lawmakers are only making life harder for teachers and LGBTQ students by trying to ban conversation about LGBTQ people, Black history, and discrimination across society,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, GLAAD President and CEO, in a statement.“Bills about “parents’ rights” should recognize LGBTQ people are parents too, or that parents have LGBTQ children, and their voices matter.
