‘Bring your most toxic selves’: Milo Yiannopoulos named ‘Straight Pride’ parade marshal

“I might technically be a sequined and perfectly coiffed friend of Dorothy’s, but I’ve spent my entire career advocating for the rights of America’s most brutally repressed identity — straight people — so I know a thing or two about discrimination,” he said in an announcement. “This parade is a gift to anyone, male or female, black or white—gay and transgender allies, too!—who will stand with us and celebrate the wonder and the majesty of God’s own heterosexuality. Men, bring your most toxic selves. Women, prepare to burn your briefcases! Because it’s great to be straight, and we’re not apologizing for it any more. We’re Here, Not Queer.”

Organizers of the parade initially used an image of actor Brad Pitt to advertise the parade, which has not yet obtained a permit.

John Hugo, whose Super Happy Fun America is behind the effort, said Pitt’s “lawyers sent us a letter asking us to take his stuff down but, you know, you’re allowed to do satire.”
