Orlando Restaurant Sues DeSantis Over Anti-Drag Law

From the Facebook page of the Orlando Hamburger Mary’s:

After many days of consideration, Mike Rogier and I have made the decision to file a lawsuit against our Governor for his signing of Senate Bill 1438 – Protection of Children. This bill has nothing to do with children, and everything to do with the continued oppression of the LGBTQ+ community.

Anytime our legislators want to demonize a group, they say they are coming for your children. In this case, creating a false narrative that drag queens are grooming and recruiting your children with no factual basis or history to back up these accusations AT ALL!

Our transgender friends are being vilified because our legislaters will not take the time to understand the importance of gender affirming care for these people. With depression and suicide, it can mean the difference between life and death.

The state is taking over our educational system and removing any books, courses or content that has anything to do with LGBTQ+. Removing courses that have any reference to African American History. When does it stop?

They are setting a precedent that the state legislaters can decide what is best for you based on THEIR own values and convictions, and write it into law. We’ve spent too many years moving forward. We can’t go back! I hope we have your support.
