On the first day of LGBTQ+ Pride Month of all days, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis signed a bill to restrict transgender females from playing on public school teams intended for girls.

His exact words were, "In Florida, girls are going to play girls sports and boys are going to play boys sports. We're going to make sure that that's the reality."

This is an incredibly transphobic statement and this law is completely unconstitutional. Republican states are continuing to strip the LGBTQ+ community of their rights. 

The measure approved by the GOP-led Legislature takes effect July 1. It says a transgender student athlete can't participate without first showing a birth certificate saying she was a girl when she was born. This is an invasion of privacy and a blatant disregard for human rights. 

Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David said the new law would harm transgender girls. "All Floridians will have to face the consequences of this anti-transgender legislation — including economic harm, expensive taxpayer-funded legal battles, and a tarnished reputation."

"This is yet another hate-driven attack from the governor and Republican legislators, and it's insulting that they've staged this morning's photo-op on the first day of Pride Month," said state Sen. Shevrin Jones. "At the end of the day, transgender kids are just kids."

These measures are unacceptable and if we do not stop this now, the problem will only get worse. Governors in Idaho, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee are taking similar action against transgender children. Sign This Petition so that we can put a stop to it!
