- Formed a Social Equity and Education Initiative to bring more awareness to the issues the LGBTQ+ youth are facing.
Started a petition on the change.org website (#LetZanderSpeak) about the situation.
Teamed with Project Pride SRQ to produce and distribute "Say Gay" stickers to ALL Florida graduating seniors to wear on their gowns in protest of the (H.B. 1557) “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
Venice Pride, Inc. stands with Zander and all the youth who are facing the backlash of the "Don’t Say Gay" bill. This is going to take many forms and we need to rally together and continue to speak out. We stand for celebrating the incredible diversity of our LGBTQ+ communities and allies.
We are already seeing the effects of this bill -- students are being silenced, year book pictures are being censored, teachers are being fired and more. Show your support! We will not be closeted.
