DeSantis limits trans treatments, drag shows, pronoun use in Florida
Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has signed bills banning children from undergoing transgender medical treatments or going to drag shows, and restricting pronoun use in classrooms.
Public bathrooms and changing rooms must also be separate "based on biological sex" under the legislation.
He said the laws would make the state a "refuge of sanity". Critics called the measures "mean spirited".
The Republican governor is expected to enter the 2024 White House race soon.
Hundreds of similar regulations on LGBT issues have been proposed in conservative-run states across the US.
