One strange right-wing logic suggests that minorities that want equal rights are somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority, and this is how the “Straight Pride movement” was started. The movement made headlines back in August after its march through the streets of Boston, when several dozen marchers walked the parade route, carrying Donald Trump messages such as “Trump nation”, “Build the wall”, and “Blue Lives Matter”. Yes, this has very little to do with being straight or gay.
Super Happy Fun America, the organizer of the parade, says it’s “committed to creating spaces for people of all identities to embrace the vibrancy of the straight community”.
However, a Straight Pride Parade that was planned in Dallas, Texas, on November 16 didn’t go as planned for the group. Only three people attended the event at Dallas City Hall, and even though the organizer, Super Happy Fun America, said that it would send supporters to the rally, only two showed up.
Even though the march was promoted by an anti-LGBT group who says that they are “Strong conservative Christians who are standing up for their Biblical values”, it wasn’t much of a protest.
Activist Soraya Colli tweeted that the two Super Happy Fun America organizers were hilariously outnumbered by pro-LGBT protesters, and about a dozen police.
The two were later joined by a member of the Proud Boys, and Colli told the Advocate that it would have been pathetic if it weren’t laughable.
