Worcester, MA, July 22, 2021 – “Super Happy Fun America” – the organization responsible for the August 31, 2019 Straight Pride March – will be hosting a fundraiser this Saturday at the Century Sportsman’s Club in Auburn, Massachusetts. The events of January 6, 2021 were a dark stain on our nation’s history and remind us all of the devastating consequences of extremism.

MassEquality, is dismayed to hear that Super Happy Fun America will be hosting an event, to celebrate the insurrection at the Capital, this Saturday in Auburn.  Super Happy Fun America is anything but, and an organization whose tagline is, “it’s great to be straight” and whose ten point plan includes language that harms the LGBTQ community, immigrants, and other marginalized communities. Their website includes lines such as: “We should seek only the best and the brightest immigrants from all nations according to the needs of the citizenry” “Remove all gender madness and anti-American revisionist history from studies” “Make normalcy normal again. Judeo-Christian values are under siege. It is time to right the ship”.

While MassEquality supports the right of all Americans to lawfully assemble, we also support the right of counter demonstrators to gather and peacefully express concern about the motives or message of those assembled and as an organization that promotes lived equality for all members of our community, we cannot sit by idly and allow hate to go unchecked,” said Executive Director, Tanya Neslusan, “To that end, we will be organizing a counter protest the day of the event”
