MIAMI, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — The leader of Florida LBGTQ+ Caucus says he fears Florida Governor Ron DeSantis becoming President of the United States, and believes that the Governor is promoting hate. Nathan Bruemmer joined me Tuesday morning on South Florida’s First News on NewsRadio 610 WIOD.

Nathan Bruemmer, leader of the Florida LBGTQ+ Caucus, joined Andrew Colton on South Florida’s First News on NewsRadio 610 WIOD. Listen to the interview.

“You know, I, I think actions really speak louder than words,” said Bruemmer. “People try and put hate out there in a lot of ways and claim that they don’t mean it to be hate. But you really have to look at the consequences of our actions. That’s something we learned when we’re very young as children. And if you heard the emotions, and the pain from even the youth that came up to the Capitol, some for the first time yesterday. I don’t know how you come away without recognizing that hate and harm is being caused without question.”

Breummer said that Gov. DeSantis’ apparent presidential aspirations are already having anti-LBGTQ ripple effects nationwide.

“I am concerned for our country. I think that’s why this entire country is looking at what’s happening here in Florida. It’s why we’re seeing other bills proposed in other states, not all moving forward. You’ve got legislators or governors standing up and saying, Okay, this is not happening in our state. Some are passing but some aren’t. They don’t like the way that you know, it’s affecting their communities and their population.”

Listen to the complete interview, above. South Florida’s First News airs 6-10a, Monday through Friday, on NewsRadio 610 WIOD. It’s simulcast on 105.9HD2, and always streaming on all smart speakers and in the free iHeart Radio App.
