Tennessee city to BAN all LGBT books from county libraries
By Laura Harris // Dec 10, 2023

The city of Murfreesboro in Tennessee plans to ban all LGBT-themed books from the county library by means of a newly passed restriction on public homosexuality.

Journalist Erin Reed reported that Section 21-72 effectively bans public displays of affection for same-sex couples. The edict specifically identifies homosexuality as a form of sexual conduct. Violators could face a two-year ban on hosting public events and selling goods and services or a five-year ban for those caught breaking the rule "in the presence of minors."

In June, the city started to ban "indecent behavior" – including "indecent exposure, public indecency, lewd behavior, nudity or sexual conduct." The Rutherford County Library Board (RCLB) subsequently used the ordinance to ban all LGBT-themed books from the library, with board members asserting their right to "enforce community standards" as a reason for the ban. Some of the prohibited books include:

  • "Flamer" by Mike Curato
  • "Let's Talk About It" by Erika Moen and Matthew Nolan
  • "Queerfully & Wonderfully Made: A Guide for LGBTQ+ Christian Teens" by Jennifer Knapp
  • "This Book is Gay" by Juno Dawson

Furthermore, the RCLB implemented a tiered library card system. Under this system, most LGBT nonfiction materials will only be available to adult borrowers. Starting next year, children and teens will only be able to check out books designated for their age group unless parents grant them permission to borrow adult titles.

Section 21-72 protects children from LGBT mafia

"Murfreesboro's new ordinance is a small piece of a larger effort to target LGBT rights in Tennessee, which was the first state to attempt a ban on drag shows," wrote the Daily Mirror, which added that the said ban was overturned in court.

"In March, Tennessee lawmakers passed a bill allowing people the right to refuse to perform a marriage if they disagree with the couple's sexual orientation. The bill was introduced to the [Tennessee] Senate, but deferred until next year."

The Mirror also noted that while the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee (ACLU-TN) has challenged the restriction, "city officials have gone ahead and ratified the measure."

Section 21-72 recently made headlines after officials attempted to enforce a ban on the LGBT BoroPride festival in October. However, ACLU-TN filed a lawsuit on behalf of the Tennessee Equality Project (TNEP) challenging the ban. A federal magistrate ruled in favor of ACLU-TN, and the event pushed through last Oct. 28.

"We are relieved that the court has taken action to ensure that Murfreesoboro's discriminatory ordinance will not be enforced during the BoroPride festival," said TEP Executive Director Chris Sanders. "

Reed also smeared the Volunteer State as one of the worst states for anti-LGBT legislation – alongside Oklahoma, Kansas and Florida. She also described state officials as attempting to "legislatively erase trans people."

However, Reed's claims about Tennessee's "oppressive" laws are far from the truth. In reality, officials in the Volunteer State are merely protecting children from the LGBT mafia and its corruption.
