Cedar Key Progress Posts 6 “We Say Gay” Billboards in Florida for Pride Month!

We’re proud to put up 6 “In Florida … We Say Gay!” billboards across Florida to celebrate Pride Month with a message of support and solidarity, funded by over 1,000 Cedar Key Progress donors.

The stakes have never been higher than they are right now for the trans and queer community

Florida Republicans are trying to make it so that our state is unsafe for anyone who isn’t a Christian, straight, white man, and we won’t stand for being known for all of this bigotry and hate. We say gay because the Florida we know welcomes everyone, whether you’re trans or cis, gay or straight, Black, brown or white.

Cue Florida to quickly pass a law against saying “Gay” on any billboard that might be seen by any K-12 minor in Florida.

Nobody said Gay when I was a kid, there were no Drag Queen Story Hours, no Pride events, no representation of any kind, and I still turned out Gay. These clowns have no idea what they’re doing, they’ll end up hurting kids in the long run. For awhile, I thought we’d made some progress in this country, now I realize the hate, fear and ignorance was just festering, waiting until it was lauded by the Republican Party. The billboards are nice, but they aren’t likely to change anyone’s mind.

My hope is that all this poison can be treated like an infection in the body like an abscess. Now that it has come to the surface, it can be lanced and dealt with. But I am at a loss as to what will be the cure.

Just read yesterday that a whole lot of LGBTQ folks are trying to move away from Florida now. Including parents of gay and trans kids who are terrified the state will seize their children from them.

Valid fear.
My friend and his husband left just last month.
As my friend put it, the medical scare his husband had is in the past but if one arises again, they didn’t want to risk being in FL and being denied care.

A friend is leaving next week to teach in the Virgin Islands to get her pan-identified son the hell out. Her husband and other son will follow them.

I wonder what will happen, when school comes back into session, and High School Students, consistently ask questions about being Gay in their classes??? What will the schools do to them???

TX Gov Gets Bill To Overturn Elections In Blue County

This is the republicans clearly showing they do not want democracy but instead want to rule.  They are drive to rule over the people instead of being civil servants.  They demand districts that they cannot lose and no democrat can win no matter who the people wish to represent them.  They demand to pick their voters and enforce their will on them rather than pass the laws the people want.   Why?  Because power gives them access to personal wealth and also the ability to force their church doctrines on the public regardless if the public has the same religious faith.  The ability to push their god on everyone, forcing everyone to worship as they do is paramount to them.   Making it the law to follow what their religious views are is more important to them than personal liberty or democracy.    Hugs

The measure would affect any county that has a population of more than 4 million people – Harris County is the only county in the state that meets that criterion.

Harris County is a bright blue spot in a red state. Donald Trump won Texas’ presidential election in 2020 by six points, even as he lost the county by 13 points to Joe Biden.



“Battles over voting.” The term is ‘attempts to restrict voting,’ NYT. There are not two sides to this.

If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.
-Desmond Tutu

A theocracy doesn’t value democratic features such as voting.

a complaint is filed or there’s cause to believe there’s a recurring pattern of problems


Yes, that one complaint thing is working out so well with the book banning crusade they thought it should apply to elections.

How are they getting away with shot like this? It’s so angering!

A court system packed with Federalist Society judges, that’s how.

I fully expect to see similar legislation in other red states.

Republicans can’t win elections fairly, so where gerrymandering has given them the power they either block people from registering and voting, or stop counting their votes through stunts such as this.

Fascism. If you don’t vote the “Right” way Republicans will fix it.

It won’t matter, by the time a case challenging this gets to the SC, the US will be a theocracy and voting will no longer exist.

Texas will settle for nothing less in the long term but a neoapartheid with white people in absolute control of brown people. That’s what I see whenever majority Latino districts are disenfranchised, there’s always a creepy old white guy like Mr. Century 21 jacket up there involved, churches and oil money.

The right to overturn the will of the people. The death of the Republic.

I dare say that the lawsuits won’t make it past TX appeals courts before TX declares that they can basically do whatever they want.
