New Florida ‘Don’t Say Gay’ Bill Moves Beyond Schools And Could Cripple LGBTQ+ Non Profits

Florida Gay rights organizations are slamming a proposed bill that they say would cripple LGBTQ nonprofit groups in Florida. Republican State Representative Ryan Chamberlin filed HB 599 that would prevent nonprofit groups or any employers who receive state funding from requiring training on “sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.”

If enacted in the upcoming Florida session, it would be a major expansion from the initial focus on schools in the Parental Rights in Education Act, called the “don’t say gay” law by critics Chamberlin said the legislation was needed “to protect Florida’s non-profit workers.”
