Tennessee Family Launches Petition To Strip Anti-Gay Lawmaker Of “Reformer Of The Year” Title

A Tennessee family is taking a stand against anti-LGBT legislation and the elected officials supporting it in their state by launching a petition against a local nonprofit that named notoriously anti-gay Tennessee legislator John Ragan “Reformer of the Year.”

John Ragan was the co-sponsor of last year’s “Don’t Say Gay” bill, a bill that would have forbid teachers to acknowledge any type of sexuality that isn’t “related to natural human history.” After the “Don’t Say Gay” bill died, Ragan introduced the “Classroom Protection Act” in February of this year, which would force teachers and administrators to out LGBT children to their parents and assist in seeking psychological counseling after.
