“Don’t Say Gay” To Become Law, But Resistance Continues.


Florida’s legislature passed “Don’t Say Gay.” Now one group isn’t just saying “Gay,” they’re shouting it from the rooftops. More precisely, they’re shouting it from billboards. In this week’s SFGN, online and on stands tomorrow, I write about Act Blue, the official fundraising platform of the Democratic party. They’ve secured $300,000 worth of inventory to get the message “GAY” and “SAY GAY” on billboards in Florida. This is in response to the passage of a bill that bans any discussion of sexual orientation, in any form, in early school years and could easily be applied to upper grades. Governor DeSantis says he will sign the gay-bashing bill. The messaging has already been approved by billboard companies. This is a stark contrast to a banner plane company that refused to fly messages calling for the measure to be defeated. They said they do a lot of business in the South Florida skies, and didn’t want to alienate any potential future clients. You can read more about this act of defiance this week’s SFGN, online and on stands tomorrow.
