PETERSBURG, Fla. — (AP) — A number of Tampa Bay Rays players decided not to wear rainbow-colored logos on their uniforms as part of the team’s annual “Pride Night” on Saturday that recognized the LGBTQ community.

Critics argue that the law's true intent is to marginalize LGBTQ people and their families.
