Last week, Queer News Tonight reported on speculation that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis would announce his presidency in tandem with Pride Month to highlight his successful attacks on transgender children, controversial books in schools, and healthcare for LGBTQ+ individuals as part of his “war on woke.” This evening at 6 pm in a Twitter Spaces broadcast interview with Elon Musk, the suspected presidential hopeful confirmed it. The announcement comes during an ongoing legal feud with the Walt Disney Company, as well as personal conflicts with former president Donald Trump. Queer News Tonight will continue to follow this news as it develops.
