It’s goal was to prohibit “classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity” in primary schools in Florida. Supported by governor Ron DeSantis, the bill came to be known as the “Don’t Say Gay” bill. Citizens and celebrities voiced their backlash on it, and the Walt Disney Company also came forward with their statements.
