A number of companies including Netflix and TripAdvisor have rejected the suggestion that their businesses will sponsor Boston’s so-called “Straight Pride Parade,” and the latter has found a fairly cheeky way to do it. Netflix, Lyft and TripAdvisor’s logos all appear on the website for Super Fun Happy America, the group behind Straight Pride, and an offshoot of white supremacist group The Proud Boys. Though the site lists the companies as “potential” sponsors, all three corporations have made clear they...

City officials in Modesto, California say they are considering granting a permit for a “Straight Pride” event scheduled for next month. Organizer Don Grundmann from the National Straight Pride Coalition tells his local news station that the event is his group’s “cultural answer” to “anyone that supports the LGBTQ lifestyle.” “Essentially it boils down to two religious views of the world,” Grundmann says. “One is Christianity, which is represented by heterosexuality, a culture of life, and its opponent is the LGBT...

Investigators of unmarked envelopes containing a powdery substance sent to organizers of Boston’s “Straight Pride” have announced the packages did not contain a dangerous substance after all. Instead, they held only Bible verses… and glitter. Super Fun Happy America, the organizers of the event, notified the FBI after receiving the envelopes earlier this week. The Massachusetts State Police bomb squad, FBI and three area fire departments all converged on the scene to investigate the packages, suspecting they might contain a dangerous...

The three main organizers of Boston’s Straight Pride ParadeThe organizers of Boston’s upcoming “Straight Pride Parade” recently told CNN that they’ve started “suspicious packages in the mail” from people who don’t approve of their event. But are these packages filled with threatening white powder or some other menacing substance? No, not exactly…. They’ve apparently been filled with glitter.

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...

It’s June, so it feels like every company is slapping rainbows on their products to celebrate LGBTQ Pride. But what about straight people? Aren’t they allowed to show their pride too? Now they can with some beauti- um… special Straight Pride gear. Amazon appears to be the place to go for Straight Pride gear, where folks who want everyone to know that that one time back in college does not mean they’re queer can order this gray pin. It comes with not one,...

Right-wing provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has officially been declared grand marshal for Boston’s upcoming “Straight Pride” parade after Brad Pitt threatened to sue organizers for using him to promote the event last week. “I’ve spent my entire career advocating for the rights of America’s most brutally repressed identity — straight people — so I know a thing or two about discrimination,” Yiannopoulos said in a statement. The parade is tentatively scheduled for August 31. source

Milo Yiannopoulos. Because, of course, it will be.

Super Fun Happy America, the apparently serious organization putting together the so-called “Pride” event, released images of Pitt on their official website naming him the “ace of this important civil rights movement.” Super Fun Happy America classifies heterosexual Americans as an “oppressed majority” despite never having been oppressed for their sexuality. Pitt, for his part,...

After the city of Boston issued a permit for a “straight pride” parade later this summer, the internet has gone wild with condemnation and comedy. But Twitter user Eva Victor may have won the internet already. In her satirical take on the ridiculous “parade,” Victor explains to her boyfriend why she’s so excited to go to Straight Pride and why it’s so important to her as a straight woman. “We have 364 days a year where we have unbelievable, unspoken privilege and...
