In opposition

My local school board took the passing if SB 656, and tried to pass a resolution on it that would be harmful to the LGBTQIA+ community. They added to what is in sb656 and what is seen here. Because they are waiting on the draft policies, I strongly oppose these policies. I especially oppose the labeling of homosexuality and/or gender identities as being sexually explicit. There is nothing sexually explicit about who someone falls in love with, or who they are (identity).
