Reading now: 815

The US state of Tennessee has progressed a bill which would prohibit public schools from using or displaying books containing LGBTQ+ themes, with the state education instruction subcommittee passing it by a 6-3 vote.

House Bill 800 states books that “promote, normalise, support or address controversial issues” should be banned from schools, and includes any books which discuss LGBTQ+ identities or issues under this umbrella.

The bill was introduced by Republican congressman Bruce Griffey, who said he doesn’t want the “state of Tennessee teaching my daughters about sex and lifestyle changes”, as cited by The Tennessee Holler.
