    Florida Families File Federal Lawsuit Against Law Known as "Don't Say Gay"

    Lambda Legal filed a federal lawsuit challenging the Florida enacted House Bill 1557, commonly referred to as the “Don’t Say Gay” law. The lawsuit argues that the law, which bans discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity in grades K-3 and restricts such discussions for students through grade 12 based on undefined standards of appropriateness, effectively silences and erases LGBTQ+ students and families.
