TALLAHASSEE, FL — (06-30-22) — As Florida’s homophobic “Don’t Say Gay” law goes into effect on Friday, the state’s public school districts have rolled out their LGBTQ restrictions.  After reviewing these new LGBTQ restrictions, it appears that the GOP’s discrimination against the LGBTQ community is far worse than you could have possibly imagined.

On Tuesday night, the Leon County School Board unanimously approved its “LGBTQ Inclusive School Guide,” which includes a provision that requires school officials alert parents if a student is “open about their gender identity” in their child’s physical education class or with them on an overnight school trip.

“Upon notification or determination of a student who is open about their gender identity, parents of the affected students will be notified of reasonable accommodation options available,” the guidelines read. “Parents or students who have concerns about rooming assignments for their student’s upcoming overnight event based on religious or privacy concerns may request an accommodation.”

Representatives of the Orange County Classroom Teachers Association accused school officials on Monday of verbally warning educators not to wear rainbow articles of clothing and to remove pictures of their same-sex spouses from their desks. They are also required to remove LGBTQ safe space stickers from classroom doors.

The state Education Department is expected to release more information about the parameters of its standards later this summer.
