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

The mayor of New York City, Eric Adams, has launched a digital campaign designed to persuade members of Florida’s LGBTQ+ community
On Monday, Adams announced the launch in five Florida cities of digital billboards and creative ads denouncing the legislation, which bans the discussion of sexual orientation and gender identity from kindergarten through third grade, The Guardian reports.

“I am the mayor of New York City but I have a message for Florida’s LGBTQ+ community,” said Adams, a Democrat. “Come to a city where you can say and be whoever you want.“Florida’s ‘don’t say gay’ bill is the latest shameful, extremist culture war targeting the LGBTQ+ community. Today, we say to the families living in fear of this state-sponsored discrimination that you will always have a home in New York City.”

One slogan on the new billboards reads: “People say a lot of ridiculous things in New York. ‘Don’t say gay’ isn’t one of them.”

Another says: “When other states show their true colors, we show ours.” The second half of the slogan is written in rainbow colors.
