Strongly Oppose

This guidance document references legislation that includes vaguely defined "acts of homosexuality" as inherently explicit. This strikes me as an attempt to bring now-trendy "Don't Say Gay" laws to Virginia, to the detriment of many Virginians. Placing LGBTQ+ topics in the same category as genuinely graphic subject matter pushes LGBTQ+ students and families to the margins and paints people just trying to live their lives as dangerous individuals. I strongly oppose this document.
