The latest event organized by Super Happy Fun America, originators of Straight Pride, took place in Dallas, TX Saturday, and was attended by just two SHFA members. The two men showed up to "express freedom of speech," after a larger planned rally was postponed because organizers did not pay security and permit fees.

"On Thursday night, the group posted to Facebook that the parade would be 'postponed' because 'the city of Dallas price gouged us,'" according to the Advocate.




"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. "It would have been pathetic if it weren't so laughable — they really believe anti-fascists are out there throwing bricks and beating up Trump supporters, but instead it was LGBT allies with rubber chickens and cowbells to drown them out."

"Ms Colli said the pair were later joined by another supporter and a woman who later 'rebuked' them," according to the Independent UK.
