Gay High School Student Zander Moricz Says the Don’t Say Gay Law is Silencing Him Right Now
A Florida High School Senior named Zander Moricz who is also the class president is suing the state of Florida over the don’t say gay law. The bill hasn’t even gone into effect yet and the problems are already beginning. Zander’s principal is allegedly threatening to cut the microphone during Zander’s graduation speech if Zander mentions anything related to his LGBTQIA activism. And this is a really bright, normal kid who simply wants to mention who he is.
It’s unthinkable that a principal would do such a thing.
“He said that he just ‘wanted families to have a good day’ and that if I was to discuss who I am and the fight to be who I am, that would ‘sour the celebration,’” Moricz, 18, recalled. “It was incredibly dehumanizing.”
Here’s more. That’s always been the excuse they use to put us down. The negative attitudes and the implication of shame for being gay. Let’s just keep it quiet for the families. Well, I stand with Zander Moricz and no one is going to keep me down any more for the sake of some straight who doesn’t want to know anything about gay people.
There’s an excellent video on the website where you can listen to an interview with Zander and his attorney. You can see for yourself what a smart, courageous kid he is. They are actually trying to stop the don’t say gay bill before it goes into effect.
