The Los Angeles County government voted unanimously on Tuesday, April 5, to suspend all official travel to Texas and Florida in the wake of the anti-LGBTQI bills passed in both US States. In February, Texas Governor Greg Abbott issued a directive to the Department of Family and Protective Services “to investigate parents who seek gender-affirming care for their trans children. While in Florida, Republicans passed the “Don’t Say Gay Bill,” officially named the Parental Rights in Education Bill, which will restrict the teaching of sexual orientation and gender identity. In an official motion, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors suspended all travel “for the conduct of County business unless the Chief Executive Officer determines that the failure to authorize such travel would seriously harm the County’s interests.”
