What if you organized a parade and NO ONE came? Anthony Rebello was the blogger/ organizer behind the Heterosexual Parade at Seattle’s Capitol Hill on Saturday. Over 2,000 people were invited on Facebook to attend the event. It 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.”
Less than 200 people said they were coming, but in the end, just one person showed up. Rebello himself.
In a June 27 blog post on his website, Smile Me A River, Rebello lamented marriage equality. The post came just 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.
Rebello blamed the lack of turnout on the negative response from the LGBT community. Yeah, right. It was a gay conspiracy.
