I seriously don't think you could find a bunch of straight men who would be caught dead walking down a boulevard wearing "butt out leather fringe chaps". Maybe Johnny Knoxville or Steve-O and the rest of the "Jackass" clan would do it for free but not many others. Definitely Sascha Baron Cohen.

Maybe there are straight dudes who would go for that attire!

I'm with Donna...why does anyone care why someone else is having a parade? I've never been a fan of parades myself.

It would be as homophobic as a white pride would be (seen as at least) racist. I doubt there is any chance it would happen outside of just wanting to put down gay people, and gay pride surely isn't about putting down heterosexuals ... it's about a struggle that straight people don't have.

these gentlemen have issues, being gay is not one of them. people attempt to hide their flaws under social movement flags. im gay im black im female, people need to own their own stuff. when this occurs we will once again become "we" and make progress. put some clothese on guys. stop wearing jock straps on the street. if you are going to "dress up" get off the street.

If we LGBT's had equal rights, we wouldn't have the NEED to march. Give us our rights and we'll stop marching.
You have the exact same rights as every American , you just don't like those rights you want special ones to suit your perverted ways.

I didn't realize getting married was so special...I mean, everyone seems to be doing it. Perhaps they all should be required to study for a few months & then take an exam. You don't pass, you can't get married. What do you think? Oh & oral sex is perverted.....just saying.

So straight people can be fired from their job or kicked out of their housing for being straight? Last I looked gay folks can be fired and kicked out of housing for being gay. Doesn't seem very fair or equal. As usual your claims are flawed.

just as fast as a white culture group would be labeled racist.
