Don’t Say Gay Gay Gay

Steve Rothaus

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.
