Florida Lawmaker Says 'No Book' Made Him Gay As State Debates LGBT Topics In Schools

"There is not book that I read that brought me to who I am." Florida state Sen. Shevrin Jones responded to a group of speakers who made homophobic remarks about LGBTQ+ topics being taught in public schools. "Just realize that there are individuals who hear you and might be in the shoe of someone that your words are hurtful towards," Jones said Tuesday. Jones is the first openly gay Black person elected to the legislature.
