New York Invites Floridians To Move Amid Florida Parental Rights Bill Controversy

New York City launched an ad campaign Monday that takes aim at the controversial new Florida law that critics call the “don’t say gay” bill.

New York City launched an ad campaign Monday that takes aim at the controversial new Florida law that critics call the “don’t say gay” bill.

The campaign will use digital billboards in Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa, and West Palm Beach, according to a New York City news release.

The law (HB 1557), “Parental Rights In Education”, will prohibit instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity in kindergarten through third-grade.

For older grades, the bill will prohibit such instruction that “is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate” in accordance with state academic standards.

Parents can sue school districts for violations of the measure. Florida Republicans have said the bill is about bolstering parental rights.

But it has drawn national attention, with opponents saying it will harm LGBTQ children. Monday’s news release about the ad campaign called the law a “targeted attack on the LGBTQ+” population.

“I am the mayor of New York City, but I have a message for Florida’s LGBTQ+ community — come to a city where you can say and be whoever you want,” New York Mayor Eric Adams said in a prepared statement. “Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill is the latest shameful, extremist culture war targeting the LGBTQ+ community.”

  1. If you want to go .don’t let the door hit you in the butt,’\and don’t come back.

  2. Sure, you can say, “gay”; but can you say “straight,” “normal,” “pervert,” “Christian,” “sin,” or a few other words I could name?
