Tennessee: Students Protest "Don't Say Gay" Bill
May 16, 2011
Some 75 students came to the state Capitol Thursday to protest a measure nicknamed the "Don't Say Gay" bill. SB 49 would limit teachers to discussing only heterosexuality in sex education classes through the eighth grade. The Tennessean newspaper reported that the demonstration was organized on Facebook, and the students came mainly from three schools in Nashville. Sen. Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville), who sponsored the bill, said he will push for a vote in the Senate this year and hopes to see the House address the matter next year.
