State lawmakers renew debate over Georgia version of ‘Don’t Say Gay law’ at Capitol

Georgia Republican Senator Carden Summers has reintroduced a bill that would require parental permission for anyone acting in place of a parent, such as teachers or church leaders, to offer any instruction on gender identity or gender transition to children under the age of 16, sparking opposition from LGBTQ advocates and free market advocates who argue that the bill unfairly targets transgender students and interferes with private organizations.
