No voice is more powerful or persuasive than that of a PFLAG member or supporter. People who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ+), and their parents, families, friends, and allies, know firsthand the impact of discriminatory laws.
Greater Orlando PFLAG works to support LGBTQ+ kids and help ensure their families are legally protected from discrimination, harassment, and harm in all settings.
Across the country, hundreds of anti-trans bills are under consideration in state legislatures. “Medical bans” criminalize treating a transgender child under the age of 18, imposing penalties on parents and health care providers. Families need to be free to access care that is in their child’s best interest. Last year, we saw Florida legislators pass laws that hurt working families and punish trans kids. On September 27, 2021, Rep. Anthony Sabatini filed legislation 456.0335 Vulnerable Child Protection Act that could prosecute doctors who perform gender-affirming surgeries and hormone reassignment treatment on transgender children.
goPFLAG is joining Equality Florida at their 2022 Lobby Days Program in Tallahassee, FL, where you will have the chance to meet with your lawmakers and make a difference!
We will travel to Tallahassee and meet with lawmakers to hold them accountable and fight for pro-equality legislation! Not only are we advocating for LGBTQ rights, but also for rights and justice for all marginalized communities. With a Trans Youth Medical Care Ban Bill filed, we know we must do everything we can to fight against these attacks.
