“Straight Pride” rally ends in bear spray & fistfights
A “Straight Pride” rally hosted by the far-right hate group Proud Boys in Modesto, California ended in fistfights and the sting of bear spray over the weekend. Pro-LGBTQ activists combined with anti-fascist protestors to counter the militaristic group that rose to prominence under former president Donald Trump. Pro-LGBTQ activists held a rally in a local park a few hours before the Proud Boys event started, but joined with anti-fascist activists to actively counter-protest the “straight pride” rally.
