The apparently serious organizers of a “Straight Pride Parade” gathered for a press conference on Wednesday to announce they’d been given the green light by the city of Boston to move ahead with their event.
The parade will likely take place on August 31 with everyone’s favorite alt-right homocon troll Milo Yinnopoulos serving as Grand Marshal.

It sounds like a really fun time.
The group’s next step is to obtain a license from the city; Boston Mayor Marty Walsh has stated he cannot turn away organizers based on their values.

“Permits to host a public event are granted based on operational feasibility, not based on values or endorsements of beliefs. The City of Boston cannot deny a permit based on an organization’s values,” he said earlier this month.
We’re going to let Eva Victor field how eye-rollingly silly the whole exercise is:

The logic behind having a gay man be the grand marshal of a straight pride parade mystifies me. Why would Milo even want to do such a stupid thing anyway? This loser must be really desperate. He’s pathetic.
He just wants the publicity. They want to be able to say that there’s no way a parade with a gay grand marshal can be homophobic.
Plenty of gay pride parades have straight grand marshals, so there’s nothing wrong with the concept in theory. But they are clearly using him as a preemptive defense, not celebrating him as an ally.
A straight pride parade headlined by a psycho freak gay guy? Wow, one more PR breach for LGB folks. This could be one bloody mess. It’s more like a fools day parade.
The fact that this parade is outraging so many people is hilarious. If i lived in Boston I’d go as an “ally” and cheer them on.

So if you’re an ally of breeders, why are you here?
And aother douchbag jumps on the Douche Parade bandwagon!!
@Jon in Canada: What?? Your question doesn’t make sense.
To everyone here who’s triggered by this: loosen up. Who cares if they hold a parade? We don’t even know what will be in the parade, this whole thing sounds like a goof anyway, and these guys are just out to be a bit of fun. If it turns out to be something other than that, THEN be upset.
The Covert Homophobic Pride Parade.
There has been a straight pride day/parade for many years, it’s called St patricks day
And July 4th parade, and Veterans Day parade, and any of the other myriad of parades for the straights.
Funny anytime you see the pictures of the supporters of these you’ll usually see MAGA hats and Nazi flags.
I can’t wait for this to happen, I want to see how many people will show up for this, and I wonder how big the counter protest be, its going to be magical people!!
The entertainment value of this parade alone makes it worth having.

You’re not wrong about that. Hopefully some nice person records it for posterity and, of course, hilarity.
You’re right. Something similar happened in Boston right after Charlottesville in 2017. They tried to have a “white lives matter” parade and only a dozen people or so showed up, were surrounded by counter protesters, and holed themselves up in a gazebo, calling the police for protection. This will be right around the time students will be moving into the dozens of colleges that Boston has. They’ll have a difficult time getting anyone to notice them at all.
The counter-protest would be so big that it will just be another Gay Pride event. Lol.
However, I think antifa groups will try to stop these inbreds for marching in the first place
Oh gawd I hope ANTIFA shows up for this, its going to be enjoyable to watch, or maybe a bunch of “radical extreme gay activists” with signs that say “God hates Breeders”!!
STRAIGHT PRIDE JUST ANOTHER EXCUSE FOR A NAZI RALLY.
There are idiots like this cuz I work with deep republicans types I work with and they say stupid things like why not? Cuz it stupid I say. We are the laughing stock of the world for doing dumb things like this. They are the type that don’t believe in global warming . I told them dumb ass it’s not some democratic thing they say it’s shit you learn in school growing up. Don’t you honk when you keep digging into the Earth’s resources it won’t create some affects on earth. Dul ! Like air pollution and throwing trash out and not recycling. Ooh not it must be wrong if a Democrat says this. How stupid are you I say. These are the people that are extremely poor and if they believe in republican views they will well off then they are. Haha I laugh.
