School Pride - Straight pride - Netflix

Straight pride is a slogan that arose in the late 1980s and early 1990s and has been used primarily by social conservative groups as a political stance and strategy. The term is described as a response to gay pride adopted by various LGBT groups in the early 1970s or to the accommodations provided to gay pride initiatives. Straight pride backlash incidents have generated controversy and media attention. School policies and court decisions regarding freedom of expression have drawn particular attention, spotlighting individuals protesting school expressions against harassment of LGBT adolescents.

“Heterosexual pride” parades exist as a response to societal acceptance of LGBT visibility, and originated in campuses in the 1990s as a backlash tactic. Incidents where the slogan or concept of “Straight pride” caused controversy have occurred since the late 1980s. In 1988, for example, Vermont Republican John Burger asked the state's Governor to establish a “Straight Pride Day”. In 1990, rallies in support of Straight Pride were held at the University of Massachusetts Amherst (organized by the group Young Americans for Freedom) and nearby Mount Holyoke College. In 1991, conservative organizations at University of Massachusetts Amherst organized a “Straight Pride” rally attended by about 50 people and protested by a crowd estimated to be ten times larger. Events which draw media attention are “Straight pride parades” or “Straight Pride days”, often organized in response to similar events organized by gay groups. Other events, typically occurring in United States high schools where First Amendment concerns arise, have revolved around people desiring to wear “Straight Pride” t-shirts. At a 2010 Tea Party Express rally in Lansing, the state capital of Michigan, a vendor was selling T-shirts printed with the slogan “Straight Pride”. Some state and national gay advocacy groups denounced the shirts, claiming that they echoed the use by racist groups of a “white pride” slogan. Some of the opposition arose from reports that the shirt seller was a sponsor of the event with a cut of sales funding the Tea Party Express, although those reports may not have been accurate. Support for straight pride events is often based on religious objections to homosexuality. Groups such as the White Aryan Resistance and Ku Klux Klan have also tried to oppose “gay pride” by stressing straight pride.
