Broward County human rights activist Michael Rajner confronted Florida Governor Rick Scott this week in Tallahassee over the Governor’s failure to mention the LGBT community in his annual State of the State address.
Rajner videotaped his exchange with Scott on Tuesday outside the Capitol building.
“I’ll try to do better,” the Governor says before shaking Rajner’s hand and walking away.
Scott addressed the Pulse Nightclub tragedy in his speech to the legislature but did not specifically mention the LGBT community or Latinx community. In his exchange with Rajner, Scott does state he believes the massacre was a hate crime.
Rajner tells SFGN he intends to follow up and write Scott a letter requesting an executive order for statewide LGBT protections.
