This Florida Student is Taking Queer Education Into Their Own Hands.

High school GSA presidents continue to carry the entire LGBTQ+ community on their backs, as one high school student demonstrated in a viral video from this past weekend. On Sunday, 17-year-old Will Larkins posted a short clip of themself educating their fourth period U.S. history class on the history of the Stonewall riots. This might be otherwise unremarkable if it wasn’t for the fact that Larkins attends Winter Park High School in Florida, the state that recently signed a so-called “Don’t Say Gay” bill into law. The law outright bans discussion of gender and sexuality in kindergarten through third grade classes, or “age-inappropriate” discussions of seuxality or gender at any educational level. And judging from the number of insane conservative replies to Larkins’ tweet, including accusations of pedophilia and grooming, it’s safe to say that “age-appropriate” discussion of LGBTQ+ issues amounts to none at all in the eyes of the proponents of the law.
