Trump supporters in Boston, MA, filed for the right to hold a ‘straight Pride’ parade in the city. The organizers claim: “Heterosexuals are an oppressed majority.”
“We will fight for the rights of heterosexuals all around the world to celebrate their pride without fear of judgment or hate.” Thus, the parade website. They are not only filing for the right to hold the parade but also to the right for the same route as the Boston Pride Parade and the same accommodations as provided for the LGBT+ parade. This includes road blockades and permission for parade floats.
The group even went as far to create their own pride vlag and elect an official mascot. They declared Brat Pitt as official mascot for the ‘straight pride parade’. One of the organizers even called him “A hero for straight people all around the world.” Pitt himself however has no official affiliations with the group.
The website specifies that anyone is welcome except for anti-fascism organization Antifa. If the parade will be rejected by the city, the group will file a discrimination lawsuit against the city council. If the group is allowed to proceed with the ‘straight parade’, it will most likely take place in August.
