Seattle artist and blogger Anthony Rebello organized a "Heterosexual Parade over the weekend.
He invited over 2.000 people to the event, but only one person showed up.
Rebello is not a supporter of marriage equality. In fact one day after the Supreme Court ruling, on his Facebook page, he called the LGBT cause a novelty and feared that the ruling would then allow animals to get married:
"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.
Once word got out about Rebello’s planned “pride” parade, social media quickly jumped on his page and condemned him for planning such an event. One Facebook member, Tara Jill Brucilla Emerson, made an apt observation, "Where's your women? It doesn't look very hetero when it's just you and a couple of other guys."
Today Rebello announced in a post that this is only the first annual Heterosexual Pride:
“Everyone was invited to this years parade, and everyone is invited to next years parade,” he wrote.
