Recently Florida’s Governor Ron DeSantis’s signed the “Parental Rights in Education” bill — some call it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill — some say this bill is just about keeping the topics of sex and gender away from young children, others see it just another attack on the LGBTQ+ community.
Lying On The Beach’s Lois Whitman-Hess and Steve Greenberg explore this controversy with their special guest pioneering journalist Steve Rothaus. Steve has covered LGBTQ+ issues at the Miami Herald for more than two decades. He’s been honored with a GLAAD Media Award for outstanding newspaper columnist and many other awards. The National Lesbian Gay Journalists Association inducted him into its Hall of Fame in 2019, the year he retired from the Miami Herald. Since then, Steve has remained active as a freelance journalist for the Herald, South Florida Gay News and WLRN News.

We are talking to David today because he composed an opera for children that teaches about the absurdity of war and acceptance of cultural diversity while exposing them to classical music. It’s called “The Mice War.” David also turned the opera into an animated movie and a soon to be produced children’s book.
“The Mice War” is about industrious Blue Mice that live in the North and the passive Red Mice that live on an Island way in the south.
The Blue Mice need to make more money so they decide they need to have a war.
The reason for the war?
The Blue Mice eat blue cheese and the Red Mice eat yellow cheese.
What would happen if the Red Mice came and made the Blue Mice eat yellow Cheese?
