Raven-Symoné and the actors of ‘Raven’s Home’ walk off the set of Disney to protest the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill

Raven-Symoné and her co-stars are speaking out against Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill, which Gov. Ron DeSantis announced on Tuesday that he hopes to sign into law “very soon.”

“Classroom instruction on sexual orientation or gender identity by school personnel or third parties may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards,” according to the controversial legislation.

The Parental Rights in Education law, according to LGBTQ rights organizations, might discriminate against gay and transgender people and make it difficult for students to address their LGBTQ family.

The company behind Symoné’s “That’s So Raven” spin-off “Raven’s Home,” Disney, has been embroiled in the debate over the measure when CEO Bob Chapek was chastised for failing to take a strong stance against it until it passed the Florida state. Later, Chapek spoke out against the bill, stating he spoke with DeSantis “to voice our dismay and concern that if legislation becomes law, it could be utilized to attack gay, lesbian, nonbinary, and transgender kids and families.”

“You have companies like Disney that will say and attack parents’ rights, they’ll criticize the fact that we don’t want transgenderism in kindergarten and first-grade schools,” DeSantis recently told a group of supporters.

To oppose the law, Disney employees held a walkout on Tuesday, and Symoné and her co-stars followed suit with their own walkout.

“We the cast of ‘Raven’s Home’ are walking out in solidarity of our LGBTQ+ family and all of those who will be harmed by the ‘don’t speak gay bill,'” Symoné stated in the caption of a Tuesday Instagram video of her and the cast marching off set. “It is critical in today’s world that we take stands, show support, and move forward rather than backward.”

Saying: “In support of our LGBTQ+ family and all of those who will be damaged by the “don’t say gay bill” we the cast of Ravens Home are walking out. In todays world it is imperative that we take stands, show support, and move forward not backwards. Every family every person and every child deserves to be recognized no matter their race, gender, or sexual orientation. Education that reflects the truth and the world we live in is something we must fight for.”

‘The’ “”Every family, every person, and every child, regardless of ethnicity, gender, or sexual orientation, needs to be honored,” the “That’s So Raven” star continued. We must strive for education that represents the facts and the world we live in.”

Symoné, who is set to marry Miranda Pearman-Maday in 2020, had previously kept her sexual orientation a secret, tweeting in 2012: “My sexual orientation is my own, and the person I’m seeing should be aware of it as well. I’m not one for making my life a public spectacle.”

Since then, she’s spent a lot of time on social media talking about her amorous relationship with her wife.

“You are the light switch that turned on the light in my life. You bring joy to my life. Those who know me (Me, Me) know that… well, every day I fall more in love with you. Thank you for improving my mood, life, and body, as well as bringing me true happiness “In June, she posted a message on Instagram commemorating their one anniversary.
