We are

#StayGay

It's time for corporations to put their money where their mouth is.

About Us

On March 28th, 2022, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed HB1557, more commonly known as the "Don't Say Gay" bill, into law.

 

It started one of the largest online, youth-led movements for LGBT rights in history: #SayGay.

 

Every year on June 1st, corporations flood our social media with rainbow logos and poorly-conceived pride campaigns, often while donating to anti-LGBT politicians like the ones who spurred the "Don't Say Gay" bill.

 

One month later, those same companies pack up shop and leave the LGBTQ+ community behind. This July 1st, the "Don't Say Gay" bill goes into effect.

 

It's time for companies to #StayGay.

 

#StayGay is a coalition of nonprofits, queer creators, and youth activists spearheaded by PRISM FL, Inc who are banding together to make sure corporations #StayGay. That doesn't just mean keeping up their rainbow logos; it's real, tangible contributions to organizations on the ground in Florida.

What we do

We're placing pressure on companies to support LGBT organizations in Florida all year until the "Don't Say Gay" bill is repealed.

That means connecting corporations and nonprofits with opportunities for partnership, maintaining a donor pool for participating organizations, and letting consumers see how exactly companies are spending their money.
