'Straight Pride' Parade
As Pride Month gets underway, a group in Boston has sparked outrage.
They have announcing plans to host a 'Straight Pride' Parade.
The group of three men who call themselves 'Super Happy Fun America' are attempting to hold their own counter-rally this summer.
They want to “celebrate the diverse history, culture, and contributions of the straight community”.
Angry Twitter users decided to use the trending tag, #StraightParade as an opportunity to educate people about the history of Pride, 50 years after Stonewall Riots.

Every day is a Straight Pride Parade, as regardless of intent, heterosexuals parade privilege across the country/world, not understanding that members of the LGBT community have continually fought and sacrificed for what they take for granted.#StraightPrideParade
