LGBTQ+ Democrats Rally Against Moms for Liberty National Convention in Tampa
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: July 15, 2022
Convention features homophobic and transphobic far-right elected officials and speakers preaching hate and bigotry
TAMPA, FL – Florida’s LGBTQ+ Democrats, elected officials and candidates will rally in opposition to the national convention of Moms for Liberty in Tampa on Friday, July 15 at 4pm. The Moms for Liberty convention coincides with the Florida Democratic Party’s Leadership Blue, and both events are being held at the JW Marriott in downtown Tampa. The focus of the rally is to highlight Moms for Liberty’s radical and discriminatory anti-LGBTQ+ agenda, which has been enacted by Gov. Ron DeSantis in Florida and is being replicated in other states with Republican governors. Moms for Liberty aims to erase LGBTQ+ people from public life, and LGBTQ+ Democrats are fighting back.
