Camila Cabello has created a fund for LGBTQ+ youth in response to Florida’s ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.

At the end of March, Governor Ron DeSantis signed the horrific bill into law after it was passed by conservative lawmakers in the House and Senate.

Under the harmful bill, classroom discussions about “sexual orientation or gender identity” in schools have been banned.

Since the law officially passed, activists have denounced DeSantis, the legislation, its political sponsors and the companies backing the legislation.

However, alongside the array of protests, LGBTQ+ organisations and public figures have taken additional steps to fight back against the harmful law.

According to a report from Variety, Cabello is set to launch the ‘Protect Our Kids’ fund during her forthcoming benefit concert on 8 May.

The impactful fund was created in partnership with Equality Florida and Lambda Legal.

Under the new initiative, resources will be provided to Florida’s LGBTQ+ youth, teachers and parents that have been impacted by the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill.

In a heartfelt statement, Cabello opened up about the importance of the fund and supporting the queer community.

“As someone who grew up and still lives in Florida, I am appalled that my home state is putting the health and lives of young Floridians at risk by passing this law and inviting discrimination into our school,” she said.

“We must protect every student and respect every family. I am so grateful to all our founding partners who are standing in solidarity with LGBTQ youth and families and raising money for the Protect All Kids Fund to help Lambda Legal and Equality Florida stop this hateful law.”

Other founding members of the fund include Lance Bass, Casey Bloys, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Justin Mikita and Sara Gilbert.

The benefit concert is set to take place in West Hollywood and feature performances from RuPaul’s Drag Race star Valentina, a youth choir and trans pop singer Shea Diamond.

Alongside the initiative, Lambda Legal has also created three different hotlines to help individuals that have been harmed under Florida’s law.

The hotlines are staffed by attorneys who will offer resources during office hours.
