A Straight Pride event at Dallas City Hall plaza attracted three supporters on Saturday. The march was hosted by the anti-LGBTQ group Protecting Our Next Generations (PONG). On its Facebook, the group promised the event would include discussions of abortion (“it is murder”), marriage values (“one man and one woman”) and genders (“there are only two”). An event flyer also posted on page reads that “we as Americans are allowing our values and morals to be compromised.” “I knew that attendance would be low, but I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw that it was just them,” activist Soraya Colli told the Advocate. Super Happy Fun America, the far-right group that organized the Boston Straight Pride Parade in August, had promised to send supporters to the event, according to the Dallas Voice. But according to Colli, only two people showed up for much of the event. Both men were from Boston, the Dallas Voice reported; the local PONG member who organized the march was not present.
