STOP NC's "Don't Say Gay" Bill HB755

In early May, the NC House passed a bill requiring public schools to post on their website lesson plans and a list of instructional materials – HB755, as passed by the House

 

On 5/24, the North Carolina Senate took the bill (HB755) and completely rewrote it, injecting "Don't Say Gay" and anti-trans/forced outing language (HB755, rewritten by the Senate):

• The forced outing of non-binary/gender-nonconforming/trans youth (page 7, lines 25-26)

• Prohibiting "instruction" on sexual identities and gender orientations in grades K-3 (page 8, lines 4-9)

 

The rewritten bill was rushed through the Senate Education/Higher Education and Health Care Committees with no notice or time for public input and is now ready for a full Senate vote.

 

If passed by the Senate, the bill would go back to the House for a concurrence vote and could be on the Governor's desk for signing as quickly as June 1st.
