School ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill will be heard this week


A bill (HB 0821) that would prohibit the discussion of gay or bisexual matters in any public or elementary school will be heard in the Tennessee House of Representatives K-12 Subcommittee at some point the week of March 16.

The Tennessee Equality Project (TEP) is urging residents to contact the committee members and ask them to “kill the bill” and voice your opposition.

Here are names and links to email addresses of the subcommittee members on. .

“If you haven’t contacted them, please consider doing so,” said Christopher Sanders, president of TEP. “Let’s kill this bill.”

In other news, TEP is going to host a golf tournament fundraiser in September and we need to start recruiting volunteers. This event will help us afford the costs of our lobbying and statewide organizing efforts. If you would like to volunteer, contact Kim Council at and let her know you are interested.
