California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom recently attempted to lie about a law in Tennessee that “bans” being gay.
Problem is, it isn’t truthful and he got caught.
A city in Tennessee has banned being gay in public.
This is just the beginning. We have to call this out. https://t.co/0G1i7dKTgp

California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom mischaracterized a Tennessee city ordinance that passed a ban on indecent exposure, lewd behavior, and nudity in front of minors, claiming it had “banned being gay in public.”
The ordinance Newsom was referring to was passed by the Murfreesboro City Council in June and amended in October to eliminate the term “homosexuality” from the code’s definition banning inappropriate sexual conduct.
Newsom was promptly called out:
Commiefornia Governor @GavinNewsom is spreading the lie that "being gay in public" has been banned in the state of Tennessee. That is NOT true.
The Tennessee law regulates against indecent exposure and lewd behavior in public, in the presence of minors, for ALL people —… https://t.co/6xguRHFrzL

The ordinance states:
This ordinance shall be implemented and interpreted to promote public decency and maintain a family-friendly environment in public places and protect against potential harm to minors from public expressions that appeal to prurient interests and are patently offensive to prevailing standards in the adult community as a whole with respect to what is suitable material for minors.
Newsom recently rolled out the red carpet for Chinese Dictator Xi in San Francisco.
