Florida Bans Rainbow Lights on Bridges During Pride Month, Declares “Freedom Summer”

Pride colors banned in Florida

In Florida, the rainbow will only have three colors during Pride month this year: red, white, and by-god blue.

Earlier this month, the Sunshine State effectively announced that it was banning the lighting of bridges in rainbow colors during June by annexing the month as part of its so-called “Freedom Summer.” Between May 27 to September 2 this year, bridges from Jacksonville to Miami Beach will only be permitted to display the colors of the traditional American flag.

In an announcement on X, Florida Transportation Secretary Jared Perdue claimed the red, white, and blue lights would demonstrate that, under the leadership of Gov. Ron DeSantis, Florida is “the freest state in the nation.” (Just not free enough to celebrate Pride month however they want, of course.)

“As Floridians prepare for Freedom Summer, Florida's bridges will follow suit, illuminating in red, white, and blue from Memorial Day through Labor Day!” he wrote.
