‘ALL families deserve to be seen on screen, and bravo to @GLAAD for celebrating LGBTQ-inclusive productions.’ 

Last month, the New York native slammed the passing of Florida’s controversial ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill, which is officially known as Parental Rights in Education. 

The bill, which will become law from July 1, bans formal lessons on gender identity for children from kindergarten through to third grade.

After the bill passed, Cynthia tweeted, ‘The ‘Don’t Say Gay’ bill just passed the Florida Senate. This bigoted legislation will create less inclusive classrooms and directly harm LGBTQ+ youth. 

‘Let’s support the LGBTQ+ community in Florida and around the country by stating #WeSayGay.’

Cynthia is a longtime LGBTQ rights activist and ran as a progressive challenger to New York Democratic governor Andrew Cuomo in 2018.
