Shortly after news broke that the city of Boston received a request to hold its very first “Straight Pride,” both the city and host group immediately received backlash from LGBTQ and straight ally communities alike.

Days before Boston is to host its gay pride parade, the group, calling themselves Super Happy Fun America, submitted a permit request to carry out a Pride, in honor of, well, the straights.

John Hugo, leader of Super Happy Fun America, explained to CBS Boston news station WBZ that the group wants people to know that there is more than one side to every story.

“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,” Hugo said.

Boston’s Mayor Marty Walsh commented on the matter.

“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.

Many have taken to Twitter to voice their thoughts:

And videos have been going viral:

If straight Pride gets the green light, plans are to hold the parade in August and to march along the same route as the LGBTQ parade happening this weekend.
