Arizona is one of seven US states that continue to hold “No Promo Homo” laws, with the state’s law prohibiting any lessons that ‘promotes homosexual lifestyle’ from the positive point of view. A lawsuit was filed in US District Court on behalf of several LGBT rights groups in the state last week. The legal challenge describes the law as “facially discriminatory and harmful,” and contends that it “bars students from receiving medically accurate, age-appropriate information,” emphasizing that it also rudely violates the American constitution, because LGBT people are demanded to be repr5esented only negatively and there are no limits or demands concerning heterosexual representation. One of the plaintiffs, a high school student identified as AA, said in a press release that such a policy leaves them unsafe and makes them feel like an outsider only because of their sexuality. The other six states with “No Promo Homo” laws are Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas.
