HeadlineMar 08, 2022

Elsewhere in Florida, protests continue against anti-LGBTQ+ legislation — known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill — that would prohibit discussions about sexual orientation and gender identity at schools. Thousands of students led a massive walkout at Winter Park High School in Orange County yesterday, chanting “We say gay! We say gay!”

Student protesters: “We say gay! We say gay! We say gay! We say gay! We say gay! We say gay!”

Hundreds more students, teachers and allies gathered outside and inside the Florida state Capitol in Tallahassee Monday as the bill is now being considered by the Florida state Senate.
