Straight Pride Parade In Boston Gets Backlash

June is historically known as Pride Month but the straight men of Boston are looking to have a “Straight Pride Parade” the same day as the LGBT Pride Parade. That sounds a little like trolling if you ask me!

The three men who created an organization to advocate for straight men called, Super Happy Fun America, complained of discrimination to the city but have not yet received any permits to host the parade.

According to their vice president, Mark Sahady, it’s their chance “to have a patriotic parade in Boston as we celebrate straight pride.” But can that really compare to the difficulties and hate the LGBTQ community face??

Sahady has organized controversial parades in the past such as a “Rally for the Republic” in 2017, where it only drew a crowd of 100 right-wing supporters. Boston is known for being LGBTQ friendly, so we’ll see how this straight pride parade turns out for them. Fun fact, Massachusetts was, in fact, the first state to legalize gay marriage back in 2004.
