Support for Boston’s so-called “straight pride” doesn’t seem to be going that well!
The official fundraiser for Boston’s “straight pride”, which was created to celebrate heterosexuality in the US city has raised only a tiny proportion of its $5000 ask.
After three days, and at the time of publishing, the group has raised just $364 or around 7.28% of its goal.
The pride is due to take place in late August and has booked Milo Yiannopoulous, the openly gay author and former Brebait journalist to be its Grand Marshall.
In a funder which is called “Permits cost money” organisers of the pride event, called “Super Happy Fun America” are asking supporters for $5000 to help cover the cost of putting on the non-LGBT+ pride event in the US city of Boston.
According to the organisers, Super Happy Fun America, “advocates on behalf of the straight community in order to foster respect and awareness with people from all walks of life”.
The pride event even has its own straight pride flag and is planning to raise the flag which is Blue and Pink with yellow Male and Female symbols interlinking in the middle.
It will, apparently be raised over Boston City Hall after the parade, after which, organisers have promised speeches. The organisers have invited Mayor Martin J. Walsh to participate.
