Florida Teen Says They’re Being Investigated for Stonewall Lesson

Author: Alex Cooper

Hello again!  Welcome to this week’s edition of “The Bulletin” a new weekly digest of top stories selected by The Advocate’s staff. Today’s issue was curated by me, Alex Cooper. I’m the digital director of, and I manage the content on the website. This week we’ve added something new to “The Bulletin” — but I’ll get to that in a second.

In this week’s bulletin, you’ll find that state’s across the U.S. are continuing to pass anti-trans legislation that advocates continue to condemn. In a first of its kind in the country, a bill in Alabama became law that criminalizes gender-affirming care. Medical professionals who provide such care could face up to 10 years in prison, according to the law signed Friday by Alabama Gov. Kate Ivey. The GOP governor also signed the state’s version of Florida’s “don’t say gay” bill.

In a viral clip, Florida student activist Will Larkins schooled some folks in a presentation on Stonewall. The nonbinary student already led their school’s walkout over the “don’t say gay” law and wrote a New York Times op-ed about the effects of the legislation on students. Now, their lesson on Stonewall might get them in trouble.

We also have Rachel Maddow making her return this week. I’m sure she’s ready to take a deep dive into these anti-LGBTQ+ laws being passed. Just like Randy Rainbow is probably already figuring out his next parody video after this week’s going after Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.

And that something new? We’ve decided to add into “The Bulletin” some reporting from our colleagues at other queer outlets. You’ll find a few pieces this week that we think are important to note.

As always, thank you for reading!
