People are still wrapping their heads around the idea of a possible "Straight Pride Parade" being a real thing, but the backlash the event caused seems to have dragged twenty one pilots into it.

If you haven't heard, a Boston man responded to pride month with a discrimination complaint against the city, looking to hold his own parade celebrating straight pride.

The city complied and now the "Straight Pride Parade" seems to be a real thing, causing social media to explode in outrage.

In the flurry of criticism, the Washington Post shared an opinion piece satirically imagining the parade's floats.



Aside from the uproar caused by twenty one pilot's inclusion in the article, other familiar faces were vocal on the subject of straight pride.

Mark Hoppus was one of the many who made their opinion known, going a step further by offering a charity opportunity in response to the parade.

Labeling the idea as "ridiculous," Hoppus pledged to put a bass guitar on auction and donate double the proceeds to the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention organization focused on LGBTQ+ youth.
