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:
