It’s happening again. Another “Straight Pride” parade. This time in the great state of Texas.

The hate fest is scheduled to take place in Dallas on November 16. The event is being organized by the alt-right hate group Super Happy Fun America, the same group that produced “Straight Pride” in Boston on August 31.

Organizers have applied for a march permit and say they expect up to 2,000 people to participate, though if the event in Boston is any indication, it will likely draw closer to 200. Currently, the parade’s Facebook event page has 26 confirmed RSVPs.

Boston’s “Straight Pride” event attracted just a couple hundred supporters, who were vastly outnumbered by over 1000 counter-protestors. Police ended up working 9,000 in overtime that day, costing taxpayers $600,000.

According to an official announcement for the Dallas event released by Super Happy Fun America, the parade hopes to bring “attention to the sexualization and corruption of America’s children” and protect “our constitutional republic” which organizers fear is “continually under attack.”

“Straight people are an oppressed majority,” says organizer John Hugo. “We will fight for the right of straights everywhere to express pride in themselves without fear of judgement and hate.”

“The day will come when straights will finally be included as equals among all of the other orientations,” Hugo proclaims.
