LGBTQ Students Back To School Fears

By Charlotte Robinson, August 16, 2023

With a total of 566 anti-LGBTQ+ bills that have been introduced in 49 states, 80 bills have passed & 86% of these bills target trans youth by banning access to gender-affirming care & banning trans students from participating in sports consistent with their gender identity. In Florida which has serves as ground zero for LGBTQ discrimination a new statewide program has been launched by Equality Florida to bring together a coalition of organizations from across the country to help parents & families in the Sunshine State. “Parenting With Pride” will build a hub of resources for those families to know their rights, have access to the support & resources they need to fight back against the laws that harm their family. Jennifer Solomon, Equality Florida Parents & Families Support Manager stated, “As a mom of four, including two LGBTQ children, the last few years have taken a toll on families like mine & the time has come for us to speak out. Parents are fed up with politicians waging war on families by banning books, censoring curriculum, whitewashing history, replacing education with propaganda -- all at the expense of our kids & their futures. We developed Parenting with Pride as an answer for families across the state, furious at how they are being used as political pawns & demanding an end to government censorship & intrusion into their lives…Our kids deserve respect & the opportunity to have schools & classrooms where they can grow into the leaders of tomorrow. Enough is enough.”
