For those who do not identify as LGBTQ+, 59 percent of people said they opposed it.The legislation in Florida states that classroom lessons “may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”If DeSantis signs the bill it would go into effect on July 1.LGBTQ+ advocates say the bill will harm LGBTQ+ youth and erase queer representation and history.
