Florida native Coco Gauff came out strongly against Florida’s “Don’t Say Gay” law. The law prohibits the discussion of sexual orientation or gender identity in schools.
Speaking about the law, Gauff said:
I think it’s important to have those tough conversations and from the people that I spoke to who are part of the community, it definitely makes a difference when you don’t have to hide who you are.
Coco Gauff has been outspoken on many social issues. She has been a strong supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement. She even gave a passionate speech at a Black Lives Matter rally in her hometown.
