Today the Supreme Court overturned 50 years of precedent around abortion rights, directly impacting all people — including LGBTQ+ folks. Justice Thomas also had some alarming things to say about Obergefell v. Hodges and Lawrence v. Texas but he only spoke for himself.

Human Rights Campaign retweeted
Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law takes effect today – the latest attempt by Republicans in state houses to target LGBTQI+ students, teachers, and families. Legislators shouldn’t be in the business of censoring educators, and @usedgov will do all in its power to protect students.

Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay or Trans” legislation officially becomes law today. It's a first-of-its-kind education censorship law that attempts to erase LGBTQ+ people from classrooms. (THREAD)

Local school officials are working to develop guidance on how educators should implement this law in the upcoming school year. There have already been reports of LGBTQ+ teachers being instructed to remove photos of their families from classrooms.
In Orange County, school staff report that they’ve been told to take down rainbow “safe space” stickers and LGBTQ elementary teachers have been told to remove pictures of their families from their desks. Don’t Say LGBTQ goes into effect Friday. (1/4) wftv.com/news/local/teachers…

Contrary to what anti-LGBTQ+ politicians have said about the law, there is no way to create inclusive classrooms for LGBTQ+ students and teachers while banning discussions about our community’s existence and history.

PEPFAR programs provide global LGBTQ+ communities with crucial support and resources. Thank you, @repdinatitus and @SenMarkey, for working to ensure people are able to access these programs.
We must protect the global LGBTQI+ communities’ access to PEPFAR programs. That’s why I joined @SenMarkey to ask that Ambassador @JNkengasong ensures his work is guided by the tenets set forth in @POTUS’ memo on LGBTQI+ rights worldwide. Read more: titus.house.gov/news/documen…

1/4 LGBTQ+ youth are affiliated with a religion but many are pressured to choose between their faith and living authentically. Today, we celebrate all queer youth of faith. We proclaim the human right to believe, to belong and to be loved. #QYFDay belovedarise.org/qyfday
