    Equality Florida Issues Travel Advisory to LGBTQ+ Visitors to the State

    Florida’s largest LGBTQ+ advocacy group issued on Wednesday a travel advisory recommending against queer visitors to the Sunshine State.

    The advisory warns “Florida may not be a safe place to visit or take up residence.”

    “As an organization that has spent decades working to improve Florida’s reputation as a welcoming and inclusive place to live work and visit, it is with great sadness that we must respond to those asking if it is safe to travel to Florida or remain in the state as the laws strip away basic rights and freedoms,” said Nadine Smith, Equality Florida’s executive director.

    Thank you equity FL for the rebuff of the Gov’s hateful, xenophoibic, racist, homo hating rhetoric and policies. Queer folk who live and visit should think twice about their choices.

    In addition to Florida, there should be similar posted warnings for Texas, Arkansas, and Tennessee. These three states are also very hostile towards all minorities.

    You are in far more danger as a LGBTQAIXYZLNMOP+ person in New York City. This “travel advisory” is based on no evidence that anyone is in “danger” in Florida.
