Los Angeles Cancels Their ‘Gay Pride’ Parade (Held Every Year Since 1970) To Make Way For An Anti-Trump Parade

If you ever needed proof that the entire ‘gay rights’ movement was just another tentacle of the greater leftism movement, then here you go!

Edward Gould, 48, and his boyfriend Bradley Land, 52, both of Pasadena, wore red shirts with white letters emblazoned with the maxim: “Make America Gay Again,” a riff on President Trump’s campaign slogan.

Gould and Bradley were among thousands of people who filled the streets of Hollywood and West Hollywood early Sunday to participate in a human rights march that this year has replaced the historic L.A. Pride parade. Gould and Land said the march was more appropriate given the political climate.

“The assault on minorities and marginalized communities in this country is unacceptable,” Land said. Land said there were many motivating reasons to march Sunday: LGBTQ rights, healthcare access, the fate of public schools. “It’s an assault on everyone,” he said. “They just haven’t all felt it yet.” \

The parade has long been a bellwether of the LGBTQ community’s heartaches and victories, from the AIDS crisis to same-sex marriage. From the first parade in 1970 — which the city’s Police Commission tried to stop, warning that participants could be assaulted — it evolved into a colorful, festive event that celebrated the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities.

But on Sunday, the parade has been replaced with what can best be described as a symbol of the Trump era — a protest march, complete with a hashtag in its name: the #ResistMarch.

“This year, the LGBTQ community is lending our iconic rainbow flag to anyone who feels like their rights are under threat and to anyone who feels like America’s strength is its diversity,” said Brian Pendleton, who organized the march. “The political climate we find ourselves in has driven us to galvanize and unite.”

This #ResistMarch, Pendleton said, was inspired by the massive women’s marches that took place the day after President Trump’s inauguration.

    So? Let’s shove a hundred thousand angry fundamentalist Muslims to California where they can be one with the gays.

      Enjoy your parades while you can, LGBBQXYZ. It’ll be your own ‘allied’ oppressed classes laying the thuggish beatdown on you, not the eternal boogeyman of straight white christian males. Because we don’t care, aside from placing bets on which victim wins.

    Does this mean the participants will be clothed?

    Someone should ask him a simple question. Which assaults? Can he name a specific event or policy that is an assault on minorities? If he can’t he should shut his stupid pie hole.

    Of course it is and always has been another tentacle of cultural marxism, just as feminism, trannism, greenish and a few more. The goal remains the complete eradication of the basic building block of Western civilisation: the traditional family.

    I now see why they used to be put in Mental Institutes.

    I guess the pride people don’t have much to be proud of anymore.

    Gay Pride is fascism. To say they’re Democratic Party operatives only scratches the surface of what they represent.

    LA is right up there with Cuba as a place I will never vacation at.

    I wonder what they would have done if a bunch of pro-sharia Muslims had come to participate and insisted that all the women be separated from the men and march at the back…

      They would dutifully bend their necks to the Mohammedans.
