Florida GOP lawmakers submit late batch of anti-LGBTQ bills just ahead of 2020 deadline

State GOP lawmakers in Florida introduced a series of anti-LBTQ bills Monday, narrowly beating the 2020 legislative deadline. 

If passed, the four bills would nullify the protection of LGBTQ employees, legalize controversial “gay conversion therapy” and threaten physicians with up to 15 years in prison if they provide particular transition-related healthcare to transgender youth, ABC News reports.

Conversion therapy is banned in over a dozen states and Washington, D.C. According to the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the practice centers on the belief that being LGBTQ is abnormal or unnatural.
