USA: Seeking Full Equality in Florida

The U.S. state of Florida is home to two politicians who have made a sport out of anti-LGBT rhetoric – former President Donald Trump and current Governor Ron DeSantis. The latter has signed into law the “Don’t Say Gay” bill banning teaching of sexual orientation or gender identity and expression in schools. But that is just the start. There are a raft of other bills attacking the LGBTIQ community passed or being proposed.

And the people of Florida seemingly approve. Governor DeSantis was elected with a greatly increased majority at the last election. But there are voices speaking against these changes. Equality Florida is the largest civil rights organization dedicated to securing full equality for Florida’s LGBTQ community. Brandon Wolf, Equality Florida Press Secretary joins us to discuss what is going on in Florida.
