Tampa Cancels ‘Pride On The River,’ Cites New Law Protecting Kids From Lewd Conduct

Tampa’s “Pride on the River” event has been canceled following a new law Gov. Ron DeSantis signed on Wednesday that will penalize businesses and people who admit children into “adult live performances.”
Tampa Pride President Carrie West confirmed to outlets the September event was canceled, and they were concerned they wouldn’t be able to restrict who sees the performances – since the event is in an open area.
“Rather than risk the licenses of participating businesses, organizers canceled the event altogether,” another report said.
