Death Threats Sent Over Elementary School Trip to LGBTQ-Friendly Bar

Author: Alex Cooper

A Florida school district board member who chaperoned an elementary school field trip to an LGBTQ-friendly bar and grill has been the target of a Twitter backlash.

Sarah Leonardi wrote on Twitter on Wednesday, “I was SO honored to be invited to chaperone [Wilton Manors Elementary School’s] field trip to the incredible Rosie’s! The students and I had a fun walk over and learned a lot about our community!”

“A huge thank you to [Rosie’s Bar and Grill] for hosting this special field trip every year!”

Negative comments soon followed Leonardi’s post. Many responded to the post by writing that the restaurant wasn’t a place for children — with many either taking issue of bringing students to a queer-friendly establishment or having students go to a bar.
