    A Boston judge ordered the defense attorney for a Straight Pride Parade protester to be taken away in handcuffs after she argued he didn’t have the right to refuse to dismiss a case. Attorney Susan Church was held in contempt of court Wednesday by Boston Municipal Court Judge Richard Sinnott while defending Lilley Antoinette, 29, a protester from Somerville who was charged with disorderly conduct at the Straight Pride Parade in Boston Saturday. Both Church and the prosecutor requested dismissing Antoinette’s case due to the police report of her arrest lacking information, including what her exact actions were at the...

    US police fired pepper spray Saturday after counter-demonstrators accused them of protecting "Straight Pride" advocates who support President Donald Trump, and refused to let officers re-open a road. The unrest came after the counter-protesters and "Straight Pride" group -- considered homophobic extremists by their opponents -- staged dueling rallies in Boston. There was no serious violence during the rallies themselves, which involved groups of several hundred.

    Super Happy Fun America has had their PayPal account permanently limited, meaning they can no longer use PayPal services, can no longer take donations, and can no longer open or use any new PayPal accounts. Essentially, they’re being deplatformed to the point where they can’t even maintain financial stability. The news comes courtesy of a post over on the Super Happy Fun America website where they shared the e-mail from PayPal who stated that their accounts are no longer viable for use. The e-mail was posted in full, which you can read below. If you’re unable to read the message,...

    Only in Clown World is it possible for big corporations to label heterosexuality as “gross”. Yes, the very thing that allowed them to type out those words in an e-mail, and gave them an opportunity at living a life in the waking world is “gross” for some people, but that’s just the way it is in an era of insanity. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, I’m talking about Netflix’s response to the Straight Pride Parade group known as Super Happy Fun America. Recently the company posted up a tweet on July 26th, 2019 with an image revealing...

    Super Happy Fun America, the guys who are going to hold the straight pride in Boston in August are accepting donations to pay off the permit to hold the parade. Seeing as how today is the last day for them to do so and they're only a quarter of the way to their goal, I just thought I'd throw this out there for anyone who would like to contribute.

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) on Wednesday mocked a “Straight Pride Parade” that is reportedly being organized in Boston as a response to Pride Month. “Will ‘Straight Pride’ be a Freaky Friday type situation where all of our history books, movies, stories, media, news, etc feature mostly LGBTQ+ people & perspectives?” Ocasio-Cortez asked on Twitter. “Will people have to come out as straight? What would folks march in? Socks w/ sandals on? Dad jeans?” she continued. Reports of a possible "Straight Pride Parade" were mocked widely on social media. The parade is being organized by three men, according to The Washington...

    Pride Month kicks off in Boston on Tuesday with a lights event, a paint night — and preparations for a possible “Straight Pride Parade” this summer. The event to celebrate heterosexuality in one of the nation’s most gay-friendly cities is meant to poke fun at the “identity politics” of the political left, organizer Mark Sahady wrote in a Facebook comment. The parade organizers have designed a flag and designated actor Brad Pitt as their “mascot.” “For them everything is based upon identity and whether or not one is categorized as a victim or an oppressor,” Sahady wrote on Facebook. “If...

    Posters promoting a "straight pride" week at a northeast Ohio university were removed this week after student leaders determined that the message went beyond free speech. Youngstown State University student government leaders told WKBN-TV they decided to remove the posters after consulting with university officials. The posters were hung around campus earlier this week. They included profanity and promoted the event as a time to not highlight sexual orientation or differences among students. They encouraged students to "go about your day without telling everyone about how 'different' you are."

    Crown Heights will see its first-ever Straight Pride Parade this weekend. So how do the homos feel? By Jaime Jordan Reggae artists on the Taking Care Of Our Own Productions (myspace.com/tcooo) label are planning a Straight Pride Parade for Sunday 31 at 10am, starting at Church and Flatbush Avenues in Crown Heights and continuing down Bob Marley Avenue.
