Florida lawmakers have voted to expand the state’s archaic ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill. Back in March, Governor Ron DeSantis signed the horrific bill into law after it was passed by conservative lawmakers in the House and Senate.

Under the harmful bill, teachers and schools are barred from discussing “sexual orientation or gender identity in primary grade levels or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students.” While the legislation only affects students between kindergarten and third grade, lawmakers in the state have recently made moves to expand the harmful law.

On 31 March, Florida’s Republican-led House of Representatives approved an extension of the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill with a 77 to 35 vote.

Under the new bill (HB 1069), conversations surrounding gender identity and sexual orientation would be banned up to eighth grade.
