Proud Boys Hashtag Has Been Hijacked
On Twitter, people are reclaiming The hashtag Proud Boys with their own kind of pride, flooding the hashtag with photos of happy (and obviously proud) gay couples.
The hashtag Brad Boys “affiliated with right-wing anti-immigration activists” exploded with tweets by the LGBT community, spreading their happy memories, and attacking right-wing members.

We grew up in a time when gay men had no rights, when newspapers called us poofs, when police didn’t investigate when we were murdered.
So now we hold hands in the street, kiss in public and got engaged on top of a fucking mountain in Rio. Because we’re the real #ProudBoys pic.twitter.com/u8w2S0EqLJ
