An American group has announced what could be the world’s first straight parade that will happen in Boston USA in August
According to the group called Super Happy Fun America, they advocate on behalf of the straight community in order to build respect, inclusivity, equality, diversity, unity, solidarity, dignity, social mobility, empowerment, sustainability, justice, awareness, intersectionality, human rights, education, access, participation, dialogue, visibility, tolerance, and alliances with people from all walks of life. They also say that they “encourage everyone to embrace our community’s diverse history, culture, and identity regardless of sexual orientation.”
A statement by the group goes on to say:
“Straight people are an oppressed majority. 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.” – John Hugo, President of Super Happy Fun America. Strength is our diversity!”
The group have also decided to add an ‘S’ at the end of LGBTQ to make it LGBTQS saying the ‘S’ is for ‘Straight’ and makes it more inclusive.
Many from the LBTQ(S) community have declared outrage at the event on social media in what many would describe as Orwellian and beyond parody.
