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.
Steve Greenberg and Lois Whitman-Hess of Lying on the Beach on Camera speak to Meg Sahdala (Sa-Dala). Meg was born in Warsaw, Poland. While working for EB Brands – a niche accessories company— Meg started her own animal related company named DOG CLOTHES AVENUE.
Back in 2014, Meg made a bold move and opened a non-profit charity called MIAMI ANIMAL RESCUE, established to rescue abandoned pets in South Florida. Six years later, Miami Animal Rescue is one of the largest Florida rescues with a newly opened shelter branch in Colorado last year. Miami Animal Rescue has saved thousands of animals — and has received many honors and awards.
