The Florida legislature has passed a bill that bans trans people from using the bathroom or changing room as the gender they identify with and instead attempts to force them to use the bathroom that matches their gender assigned at birth. If another person points them out, they must leave the bathroom immediately or face arrest. The bill awaits the governor’s signature.

The expansion of Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law has passed the Florida legislature and is now on its way to the governor’s desk for signature. This bill expands the current restrictions to cover grades all the way through 12th grade, even covering students who would be 18 and legally adults, although they may still be in the public school system. The bill restricts the discussion of LGBTQ+ persons and relationships across the board.

As Hayley Kiyoko was sound checking before her show in Nashville, undercover police were there to tell her she couldn’t have drag performers in her show, even though that law is still under a temporary restraining order. She did it anyway.
