The state of Florida recently passed a controversial bill that prohibits discussions about sexual orientation or gender identity in classrooms for younger students. Critically labeled the “Don’t Say Gay” bill, it has faced significant backlash from various groups and businesses, particularly those with ties to Florida. In response, numerous employees of the Walt Disney Company staged a walkout to protest the bill and urge Disney to take a stronger stance against it.

In addition to Disney’s workforce, the actors starring in their television and film projects, who are among their top earners, have voiced their discontent. During an interview with Variety, Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke, leading actors in the upcoming MCU series Moon Knight, shared their concerns about the bill.

“It’s an absolutely ridiculous law,” expressed Isaac. “It’s insane. It’s insanity. And I hope that Disney as a company comes out as forcefully as possible against this idea. It’s astounding that it even exists in this country.”

Regarding LGBTQ education, Hawke emphasized, “My life’s work is dedicated to creating empathy. I feel the power of stories that we tell each other. If you tell the truth about human experience, you invite empathy. And the more places we shine light, the less dark places there are, and there’s less to be afraid of. And the more we understand each other’s experiences, the more humanity we find in them, and the better we all actually feel. So that’s my job, and that’s what I believe in.”
