Protesters recently took to Park Central Square in Springfield to oppose Senate Bill 134. Among other things, the bill would ban school staff from discussing gender identity and sexual orientation with students. Senate Bill 134 was proposed February 7 by Republican State Senator Mike Moon of Ash Grove. In March of last year, Florida passed a bill similar to Missouri’s proposal. But Florida’s law only bans the discussion of gender identity and sexual orientation from Kindergarten through third grade, while Moon’s proposal goes further.
