AOC attacks straight Pride parade: ‘What would folks march in? Dad jeans?’

2

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has poked fun at the idea of straight people holding their own ” Pride” parade to protest the prominent demonstrations in celebration of the LGBT Q+ community.

The New York Democrat who has risen to prominence as one of the leading progressive voices in Congress, took to Twitter to join in and drag the idea of holding a “Straight Pride” parade as ridiculous.

“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? Will people have to come out as straight?” she tweeted.

“What would folks march in? Socks w/ sandals on? Dad jeans?” she continued.

The proposed straight pride parade is set to take place in Boston, and comes as communities across the country celebrate the LGBT+ community as a pride of 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?

Will people have to come out as straight?
