Kentucky’s ‘Don’t say gay’ law miserable for LGBTQ students

Kentucky’s version of a “Don’t say gay” law is creating many problems for LGBTQ+ students — and the parents and teachers who want to support them, numerous queer advocates said. In March, the state’s Republican-majority legislature overrode Democratic Gov. Andy Beshear’s veto to pass one of the nation’s farthest-reaching anti-LGBTQ+ laws. Senate Bill 150 includes a ban on all gender-affirming care for minors plus a prohibition on public school instruction on sexual orientation and gender identity at all grade levels. It also requires school districts to “at a minimum” bar trans students from using the restrooms comporting with their gender identity and mandates that school personnel tell parents about confidential discussions with students about sexual orientation or gender identity, essentially forcing the outing of these students.
