Over 2,000 people were invited on Facebook to attend Seattle’s Heterosexual Pride Parade on Saturday, but it seems only one person was interested in wasting their day parading their homophobia.
Blogger Anthony Rebello, the organizer behind the event, was the only person to show up even though 169 had responded “yes” saying the would show up to the event.
The event was created “in the name of equality [and] equal rights … to celebrate our right to be heterosexual, and to encourage younger heterosexuals that they should be proud of their heterosexuality.”
Rebello can be seen marching with black and white balloons and a cardboard sign reading “Straight Pride” in photos posted on Facebook over the weekend.
HuffingtonPost points out this June 27 blog post by Rebello one day after SCOTUS’ decision to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide:
I think it’s a trend. A cry for attention. From your government, a distraction. For $. I have previously stated how I feel about marriage in this post: MARRIAGE I have also created an event: Heterosexual Parade Gay Mafia? Maybe animals should be allowed to get married? Would they govern and tax them too? While they’re at it, how about equal rights for insects? In my opinion, there is a difference between a man and a woman. If you can’t appreciate those differences, you can’t enjoy those differences. I don’t agree with boys turning into girls, and I don’t agree with girls turning into boys. The word/meaning of “Pride” doesn’t belong to the gay/lgbt community, it belongs to everyone. That includes us good old fashioned straight people. The way I see it, in my opinion, some boys never turn into men, and some girls never turn into women. What a shitshow. “Welcome to the other side of the rainbow” Really? No thanks.
