Boston Is Holding A ‘Straight Pride Parade’ And Social Media Promptly Destroyed The Organizers

“So trash for this…”

Published June 4th

With Pride Month in full swing, some straight folks are feeling left out of the celebrations and have decided to plan their own parade, without the pesky oppression that preceded it.

An organizer named Mark Sahady claims on Facebook that the city of Boston has approved his “Straight Pride Parade,” and the event is currently being planned.

  1. Organizers hope to travel the same route as Boston Pride, which begins in Copley Square and goes through the South End on the way to Boston Common and City Hall. A date has not yet been set.

    “The Straight Pride Event will be held to achieve inclusivity and spread awareness of issues impacting straights in Greater Boston and beyond,” a post on a website advertising the parade reads. “It will be a one-day event consisting of a parade followed by a flag raising ceremony.”

    Unsurprisingly, social media was quick to respond — and it wasn’t pretty. See some of the best tweets, below:
