Anti-LGBTQ+ Measures in Florida Limit Job Opportunities and Resources

Florida’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, has been moving to ban gender-affirming care for trans youth in the state and has passed an infamous ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law. These measures are limiting job opportunities for drag entertainers and reducing resources for transgender individuals. They also prevent students from learning about LGBTQ+ topics.

Fear for the Right to Exist as Queer and Trans People

Venus Envy said that the impact of these bills is already being seen in the increase of hatred toward the LGBTQ+ community and that drag queens are being demonized as predatory. The number of LGBTQ+ venues in Orlando has decreased since the Pulse massacre, and if the Hyatt’s liquor license is revoked, other venues could stop their drag performances for fear of backlash. The community is scared, not just for their jobs, but for their right to exist as queer and trans people.

This follows Tennessee becoming the first US state to ban drag performances in public places where minors might see them.

Increase in Anti-LGBTQ+ Bills in America

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) noted that more than 410 anti-LGBTQ+ bills were introduced in America during the first few months of 2023. The number of bills introduced between January and March of 2023 alone is higher than the number filed throughout the entirety of 2022.
