Gay Men Are Taking Over The “Proud Boys” Hashtag With Photos Of Queer Love

Nearly a week after President Trump instructed the far-right extremist Proud Boys group to “stand back and stand by” during 2020’s first presidential debate after being asked to condemn them, internet users have reclaimed the #ProudBoys hashtag by flooding Twitter and Reddit with photos of gay men in love and expressing physical affection.

Founded by Vice co-founder Gavin McInnes, the Proud Boys considers itself a group of β€œwestern chauvinists,” while the FBI and the SPLC consider it a hate group with links to white supremacy.

Couples from all over the world have been getting pretty personal with it, sharing important moments from their relationships.
