controversial so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill was signed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, according to WESH.The bill, HB1557, states that "the bill reinforces a parent's fundamental right to make decisions regarding the care and upbringing of his or her child in the public school setting."Also, according to the text in the bill, "classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity 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."In response to Newsweek, Southern Progress PAC volunteer Ally Sammarco said the group is doing this in order to "combat the harmful and unnecessary 'Don't Say Gay' bill.""The bill is quite frankly, a solution looking for a problem.

We should let kids talk about who they are and where they come from, without fear of repercussions. The idea that teachers are grooming children is a weird conservative fantasy that helps them 'explain' why some kids are gay.

It's just not true. Most people know what the real intent of this bill is, and if you ask anyone from the LGBTQ community, they know what the consequences will be," she said.Sammarco told WESH that the billboards come with a very straightforward message and purpose."It's OK to say gay.

It's more than OK. It's encouraged," Sammarco said. "We want to make it very clear that it's OK to talk about who you are and where you come from and no one can stop you from doing that."The company added that its campaign is meant to show support for those individuals who may be affected by some of the new legislation across the country and to "speak out against the discriminatory laws."In a response.
