Ron DeSantis, Let Us Live in Florida!


Transgender activists from across Florida marched on the state Capitol with a simple demand: “Let Us Live!

At a rally on the steps outside the building, LGBTQ leaders and progressive lawmakers slammed legislation HB1639 threatening to erase trans identities. 

If passed, the legislation could reportedly make it easier for health insurance providers to refuse to offer gender-affirming care for trans people. It might also require medical insurers that cover transition procedures to cover “de-transitioning”.

In addition, the proposed law would mandate that state-issued IDs, such as driving licences, display the person’s sex assigned at birth in Florida

Beyond fighting transphobic bills, trans leaders and allies also promised to seek office and sit more queer lawmakers in the halls of the Capitol to fight Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis’ anti-LGBTQ policies.

Florida has become infamous for passing anti-LGBTQ legislation, with the “Don’t Say Gay” law affecting classrooms across the state. The Republican Floridian lawmakers have also tried to ban public drag performances, as well as bar trans people from using public toilets consistent with their gender.

Not one step back in Florida!!!
