LGBTQ groups have sued the state over a 1991 law that prohibits any positive portrayal of LGBTQ people or same-sex relationships while teaching in public schools about AIDS or HIV. State Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman is named as a defendant, but is on the side of the LGBTQ community. She will discuss why she thinks the state law is harming the community.
