Eric Adams launches Florida ad campaign denouncing state’s ‘don’t say gay’ legislation

slogan on the new billboards reads: “People say a lot of ridiculous things in New York.Emma Beddington Cities, trains, a Paris weekend… It’s noisy and busy, and I didn’t realised how much I had missed it We’ll always have Paris: ‘I think some of us have also lost the habit of other people, the look and sound of them, the affront of their marginally different choices.She and her two daughters came into the city via Penn Station and were walking down Ninth Avenue when Winfield asked her daughters: 'Where are you going?'..

‘Don’t say gay’ isn’t one of them.” Another says: “When other states show their true colors, we show ours.’ Photograph: Alamy Sun 3 Apr 2022 08.” The second half of the slogan is written in rainbow colors.Gradwell said she will not return to the city, despite enjoying the theater district.Another sign says: “Loud.It was a wrench to leave my silent monastic cell of a home office, with my blanket nest and laptop stand arranged just so, but a trip to Paris trumped all that.Proud.

Still allowed.My sister, who lives there, bought a flat recently, which sharpened my urge to go and cast a hard sibling eye over her soft furnishings, gossip about her neighbours and rate her local bakery.” Another: “New York City is alive.And so is free speech.I started regretting it around Doncaster when the man across the aisle began watching a medley of Premiership goals without headphones, while the one in front of me was vigorously phlegm clearing.” The digital campaign will run from 4 April to 29 May in Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville, Orlando, Tampa and West Palm Beach.New York officials said the campaign would deliver an estimated 5m impressions.“PEOPLE,” I messaged a friend, because tutting felt like an inadequate outlet.

The Florida bill, signed into law by the Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, requires the implementation of “procedures to reinforce the fundamental right of parents to make decisions regarding upbringing and control of their children”.It allows parents to launch legal action against school boards if they believe policies overstep that “fundamental right”.People.On Monday, the chancellor of the New York City education department, David C Bank, said: “Educators work every day to make New York City public schools safe and supportive environments for LGBTQ+ youth.“From what we teach, to how we care for young people, we create schools that affirm and lift up the students and honor who they are.I know, because I am “people”, and I am doing it.Children bring the totality of who they are into our classrooms, and the cruel actions being taken across this country to attack LGBTQ+ children is contrary to everything we believe in as educators.

” Daniel Dromm, a former chair of the city council’s finance committee, said: “As a New York City public school teacher for 25 years, I have news for Florida: students are already saying ‘gay’.People: they don’t wear masks (as is their right); they talk loudly (permitted); manspread (should be illegal, but isn’t); shriek as they open cans of 9am cocktail and make video calls in the “quieter” coach.They see us on the news and on television shows.They know that LGBTQ+ people are their family, friends, and neighbors.) People: they stare at you balefully as if they are the train police, sighing theatrically if you so much as sip your water (OK, this is me).“These ads will reaffirm New York City’s commitment to creating an inclusive school environment, in sharp contrast to the discriminatory policies of Governor DeSantis.” The Florida law has generated backlash from LGBTQ+ communities and from the corporate world.But I think some of us have also lost the habit of other people, the look and sound of them, the affront of their marginally different choices.

Last month, Disney employees staged walkouts over the bill after the chief executive of the entertainment giant, Bob Chapek, did not publicly condemn the bill.Disney, which employs more than 75,000 people in Florida, later said it would pause all political donations in the state.It feels stressful – should I just give up and never go anywhere again? Is it worth the aggravation? It feels stressful – should I just give up and never go anywhere again? Is it worth the aggravation? It was totally worth it.Topics.
