Super Happy Fun America is excited to announce that the City of Boston has agreed to our request to hold a Straight Pride Parade on August 31st. We would like to congratulate the City for embracing progress and recognizing the rights of straights. The parade will be a seminal moment in the history of civil rights in America. All are welcome, both straights and allies, to join us in celebrating the diverse history, culture, and contributions of the straight community.
Ever since knowledge of the parade became public, there has been a barrage of hate directed against straight people. We are disappointed that celebrities and politicians including Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Evans, Stephen Colbert, Bill Maher, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and Eric Swalwell have chosen to use their power and privilege to fan the flames of intolerance by disparaging our young civil rights movement. However, we are encouraged by all the support we have received from around the world. The parade is a festive occasion that will be used as a platform to educate the public on the unique problems facing our community and to fight against heterophobia.
While we are greatly appreciative of our gains, especially the parade, there is still a lot of work to be done in order to achieve full straight equality. We will continue to push for the City of Boston to allow the straight pride flag to be flown from the City’s flag poles. Unfortunately, the City has chosen to deny our request in violation of MGL c.272, s.98 which prohibits discrimination based upon sexual orientation in places of public accommodation. We ask Mayor Walsh to reconsider his decision not to attend the parade and instead join us in order to express his support for the straight community. Also, we are asking that an “S” be added to LGBTQ in order to be inclusive of our community and foster an environment of super happiness, fun, tolerance and love.
Please direct media inquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (774) 224-5100. Also, we will be conducting regular live streams and press conferences in order to keep the public informed.
