Lighting kerfuffle comes to Tallahassee with no orange at previous Capitol

In the wake of LGBTQ+ local community outrage about the turning off of Delight Month rainbow lighting on bridges in Jacksonville and Sarasota, gun command advocates now say the state blocked lighting the Historic Capitol making in orange to honor gun violence victims. 

The Department of Management Providers (DMS), which manages condition properties and reports to Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis, dismissed a request for orange lights at the Capitol on National Gun Violence Awareness Day, which was very last Friday.  

Information of that inaction arrived soon after the Department of Transportation, also under DeSantis, requested rainbow lights shut off this 7 days on Jacksonville’s Acosta bridge for the reason that there was no “allow” that allowed this sort of lights. It also denied a ask for by Sarasota officials to light the Ringling Bridge in rainbow colors.
