The Radiance Foundation celebrates Florida ruling blocking transgender surgeries and experimental drugs­­ for youth

Ryan Bomberger: ‘The cult of transgenderism has proven that the LGBT movement doesn’t care that children are the collateral damage in their desperate and dangerous attempts to redefine humanity’

WASHINGTON — Conservatives across America are celebrating the recent victory for adolescent health in Florida. Recently, Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo announced that the Florida Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine voted to ban minors in the state from obtaining puberty blockers, cross-sex hormones and gender transition surgeries. “Children deserve to learn how to navigate this world without harmful pressure,” Ladapo stated. “Florida will continue to fight for kids to be kids.”

The vote was met with displeasure from radical LGBTQ activists, who argued that the vote “to deny medically necessary, age-appropriate healthcare to transgender young people will do irreparable harm to countless Floridian kids and their families,” according to one spokesperson.

Ryan Bomberger, chief creative officer and co-founder of The Radiance Foundation (Radiance,, responded to the vote, arguing that Florida’s step towards protecting children from often irreversible and unnecessary medical procedures will save thousands of children from harmful damage.

“‘Freedom Florida’ has cut the shackles off vulnerable children indoctrinated with gender radicalism,” Bomberger said. “Despite LGBT pseudoscience infecting young minds in public schools and through news and entertainment industries, real medical professionals on Florida’s Boards of Medicine and Osteopathic Medicine are trying to stop the spread. As a society, we should never have gotten to the place where medical boards need to ban extremely harmful puberty blockers and body-mutilating surgeries for children. These pseudoscientific assaults on our children should never have been allowed in the first place. The cult of transgenderism has proven that the LGBT movement doesn’t care that children are the collateral damage in their desperate and dangerous attempts to redefine humanity. Human Rights Campaign (HRC), an LGBT activist organization heavily funded by Corporate America, falsely calls gender-attacking drugs and surgery ‘medically necessary, age-appropriate healthcare.’ A lifetime of drug addiction and the severing of perfectly healthy body parts is not healthcare; it’s abuse. It’s unsurprising that the same HRC that aggressively advocates legalizing the violence of abortion and prostitution now claims that these radical gender-denying procedures are ‘life-saving.’

“LGBT groups and medical associations who choose fiction over facts hide behind suicide rhetoric, claiming that without these extreme measures, people will kill themselves. Many studies refute this false claim including a study done in the Netherlands on suicide and gender dysphoria. The Netherlands is considered one of the most ‘progressive’ countries regarding homosexuality, bisexuality, and transgenderism. It has long been a place that has ‘destigmatized’ non-heterosexuality. Yet, suicide rates among ‘transgender’ individuals are 3 times higher among ‘trans women’ and 5 times higher among ‘trans men’ than heterosexual men and women, respectively. These rates include those who are post-op, proving that suicide rates are distorted and exploited by LGBT activists to scare the public into accepting medical harm disguised as healthcare.”
