BOSTON (CBS) – Days before Boston’s Pride parade fills city streets, celebrating the LGBTQ community, another parade proposal is causing an uproar on social media. John Hugo is the president of a group calling itself Super Happy Fun America. His goal is to create a straight pride parade.

Hugo explains, “We want people to be aware that there is not only one side of things. There’s a lot of people that are uncomfortable with a lot of things that are going on in our country and they’re afraid to speak up.”

The idea for a straight pride parade is one Mayor Walsh is quick to dismiss.

“Come on, I don’t know what this straight pride parade is all about. I know that we have a pride parade on Saturday and that’s what I’m going to march in,” Mayor Walsh said.

Boston Pride President Linda Demarco says in a statement: “Boston Pride welcomes everyone to march in the Pride Parade this Saturday, June 8th. We know that straight allies of the LGBTQ community are among the thousands of supporters who come out every year to march, observe and celebrate. We are looking forward to seeing our straight friends, family, and neighbors at the Boston Pride parade and festival this Saturday along with members of the LGBTQ community. In the meantime, we are focused on putting on our largest Boston Pride parade ever.”

Hugo says if they do get the go ahead from the city, they’d like to hold the parade the last Saturday of August and it would be the same route as this weekend’s pride parade.

He also says next year he would be open to merging with the Pride Parade.

    yes more parades….more …since they have no idea re d-day……we created a bunch that couldn’t defend Carson beach…..GOD BLESS USA AND POTUS 45!

    1. I thought the LBGQXYZ’s were now equal? If so, why would they care about a straight pride parade? Equality isn’t a one way street. But more importantly, we need to be raising men, like ones who landed on Normandy, not a bunch of pansies who have to express themselves day in and day out.

      1. Dave Turner says:

        But to them it’s a one way street. They’re “special”, remember? /s

      2. Chris Havens says:

        You have to remember All Animals are equal. Just some animals are more equal than others.

        Besides, is not PRIDE one of the deadly sins? May as well let them have another one.

      3. Ken Dixon says:

        And you’re certain that not a single one of the 132,000 men who invaded France was gay?

      4. It’s lgbtP – Pedophilia is the next thing to be normalized in Clown World.

      5. Dorothy Cohen says:

        You do realize that there were gay men serving their country, and a few were most likely on Normandy Beach that day, just like there are gay men and women in the service today, Love letters from a British RAF to his love during WWII have been uncovered; and some gay people are probably fighting that miserable war in Afghanistan. There were definitely gay soldiers in Vietnam, as they’ve told their stories publicly, and there’s been writings that show there were gay Union and Confederate soldiers, and we can’t forget male on male rape in the military. All of those men and more recently, women served their country and GASP were gay. I think I’d rather sit in a foxhole next to one of them any day of the week because they are most certainly not pansies. p.s. For the record, I’d rather have no parades at all, but if its going to happen, I believe anyone should be able to have a parade, gay or straight.

    2. Advertising and celebrating one’s perversions and mental illness is not a great idea. It gives children the wrong impression of what sex and love and marriage and normal family, is.

      1. Morgan O'Rourke says:


    3. Dan Purcell says:

      Liberals don’t have to be gay to suck.

  2. Russell Jennison says:

    How about everyone keep their sexuality to themselves? No need for parades, most people don’t care.

  3. Chris Martel says:

    So let me get this straight, we can celebrate perversity, but do NOT celebrate normalcy. Free speech only to those who agree with the lgbtqrstuv crew.

    1. You forgot the P for pedophiles.

  4. John Mattaboni says:

    Because YOUR group can’t be represented. No officially sanction “victim” status.

    1. If you think white straight conservative men are not being victimized in all quarters, you aren’t paying attention. Check out Jordan Peterson, he has made a lucrative career out of defending men and boys who are mostly white, conservative, maybe even Christian … Although, he works in the interest young colored boys and men have some of the same issues, if they don’t happen to be street apes. That is a whole other problem.

  5. Mels Rogue says:

    Love the liberal tolerance and equality
    or should I say lack there of

    Again example #908745 liberalism is a mental disorder

  6. Carter Gwynn says:

    We shoud celelbrate diveristy and let the straigths parade.

  7. Forest Vanhelde says:

    I think it’s a great idea! Everyone is invited, straight, gay, bi, etc. Let’s Party!

  8. Mike Arvand says:

    liberals. all about “tolerance and understanding” but can never tolerate or understand anyone with a different opinion.

  9. Dennis Taylor says:

    I wonder which group will be better dressed..

    1. More appropriately is a better question.

  10. d0ct0rj says:

    Nobody should be surprised at this. Those protesting a Straight Pride parade are merely heterophobic hate-mongers.

  11. Forest Woodstock says:

    Combine nothing.. Let the Gay Pride parade happen, then the Straight Pride parade. You angry liberals need to cool your jets and recognize that 3% of the population does not override 97% of the population.

    1. You would think by 2019 we would have a clear irrefutable percentage of the population that each sexual preference group represents but we all use ‘ranges’, even trained Doctors and Therapists use Ranges. I think it serves a political purpose and it was worked WONDERS for some 1 to whatever percent. I bet homosexuals only are at best 2.25%

  12. Steve Madison says:

    not this way…you can’t mock the mockers.

  13. It is a tongue in cheek idea designed to rile perpetual victims and whiners. I would join the march if I could. Identity politics suck.

    1. Well, the gays don’t understand tongue in cheek. Oh wait …

  14. Which one is for breeders? L G B T or Q?

  15. James Lea says:

    But no backlash on gay pride marches?

  16. Doug Johnstone says:

    Anyone who is against the straight pride parade is a heterophobic bigot. Absolutely sickening we still have bigots in this country.

  17. David Puddy says:

    Why are leftist the most intolerant people?

  18. Greg Marmai says:

    You have your hetero parade in Boston, it’s called the St. Patrick’s Day Parade, the one where you allow child molesting priests march but not Gays.

  19. Michael Chovich says:

    Maybe they are proud that they made babies with their spouse and created a family. I am proud of marrying my wife and having a bunch of children with her.

  20. How about combining the two and calling it the “Exhibitionist Pride March”?

  21. Sam Spade says:

    Only sodomy should be celebrated.

  22. John E Walker says:

    Straights seem to be the real oppressed minority now… so why not a parade for them???

  23. If nothing else this allows everyone to see how stupid pride parades for any group really are. Go out and live your life…

  24. Reginald Winthorp says:

    Haters gonna hate, but not procreate.

  25. Although everyone, gay or straight, black or white or Asian, etc., should be allowed to have a pride parade, you KNOW what would go down if one happened. All the snowflakes and militant types would demonstrate against it and it would turn into a riot requiring teargas and other police intervention, because The Left isn’t peaceful, law abiding or well-behaved.

  26. Wayne Gilmore says:

    Once again Liberal, leftist are GIGANTIC hypocrites. We can do YOU can’t.

  27. jay10940 says:

    This proposal certainly has brought out who the haters really are and it’s not the heteros.

  28. There was already a straight pride parade in Charlottesville. It didn’t go over that well.

    1. Matthew Graff says:

      Yes as those Antifa parades are so full of tolerance and acceptance, you know the Antifa darlings of the left?

  29. John Mandell says:

    Sodomite peodphiles & Afkikans are the only ones who can be recognized anywhere.

  30. This is just some guys with a sense of humor trolling people without a sense of humor. Everybody calm down. LOL

  31. Tony Johnson says:

    Liberals and queers only want it their way. Anything else is unacceptable to the tyrannic deviants of perversion and filth.

  32. Matt Oldfield says:

    What are Liberals and Gays afraid of. The parade might make them Conservative and Straight?

  33. Gerg Steven says:

    A parade for the normals. Who woulda thought?

  34. Sam Fry says:

    Great! So the gay allies of the straight marchers will be right alongside them….right?

  35. Larry Dean Hinze says:

    They shove their parades down out our throats (HA HA!) and we go with it. I don’t care if your gay, you should not care if I am straight. I have just as much right to attend a PROUD TO BE STRAIGHT rally as anyone. GET OVER IT.

  36. pvl sgl says:

    Good idea!

  37. pride.. there’s another word hijacked by the left. first it was “gay”, there was a time when “gay’ just meant “happy”, now it means your’e a homo. and more recently “curvy” which now means you’re fat..

    the latest is “pride”, now synomynous with “gay” which means you are a homo.

  38. Funny how the groups that want equal treatment and inclusion don’t practice what they preach

  39. What exactly is the homo community supposed to be celebrating anyway? Those parades are a huge waste of resources. Best to tell them all, gay or straight, if they want to celebrate their sexuality to perhaps drink some champagne and do some party poppers in the privacy of their own home. Keep your bedroom out of our lives – we don’t care.

  40. Oren Wysocki says:

    It is discrimination to deny straight people the right to defend behaviors that defend their souls and their human biology. Human sexuality is not limitless in its options and potential, all of our emotions are derived from our biology and spirits. You will live with feelings of incompletion, gender confusion, loneliness and many more if you violate the limitations of the human being or deny yourself A massive desire for the opposite sex.
    To teach children that there are no genders is also child abuse, our very thoughts are almost entirely dependant on our biology and souls. To trick children into rebelling against how they were born, spending their whole lives trying to be equal to avoid supposedly hurting girls feelings or that of homos is immoral, female history and behavior along with male history and behavior does not back up the false and fake teachings of most american universities that women underperformed men in the workplace due to schovanism, the same explanation about the only opposition to homosexuality being based on hatred is shallow, and A cover for censorship. In G-d I trust.

  41. John Oakman says:

    The gay crowd kills each other at a higher rate than society at large—wonder Y ??

  42. Paul Roberts says:

    “The idea for a straight pride parade is one Mayor Walsh is quick to dismiss.” So Straight people have no forum because we are discriminated against. I hope the Straight community kicks his butt out of office next election. If you give preference to one group you cannot deny it to another. Sexual discrimination. Is it bad to have people to be proud that they are not Homosexuals? What is the Mayor identifying himself as today? An ass.

    Super Freak Parade….
