The website also features a woman in a “Make America Great Again” headband saying, “LGBTQ is not LGBTQS. The ‘S’ is for Straight. It’s more inclusive this way.”
(Tyler O’Neil – PJ Media) Last Thursday, an organizer of the Boston Straight Pride Parade announced that the event would likely take place this coming August. On Tuesday, another organizer confirmed to PJ Media that the event is real and serious. In fact, he even predicted that the straight pride flag will fly over Boston City Hall.
Last month, Super Happy Fun America (SHFA) reported that Boston Mayor Marty Walsh had denied its request to fly the straight pride flag above City Hall. In response, the organization announced, “we have determined that a parade would be the best way to promote our community and its diverse history, culture, and identity.”
“For now, it’s necessary to remind the city that they are legally obligated to treat straight people the same as people of other sexual orientations. MGL c.272, s.98 prohibits discrimination based upon sexual orientation in places of public accommodation,” SHFA wrote, using the sexual orientation gender identity (SOGI) law against its intended purpose.
“The Mass Commission Against Discrimination is going after the City of Boston for refusing us the flagpole, but everything else is moving along nicely,” John Hugo, a 2018 Republican candidate for Congress in Massachusetts and SHFA president, told PJ Media on Tuesday.
