13 Cheeky Ways People On Twitter Completely Shut Down Heterosexual Pride Day

Humor saves the day.

June is Pride Month — a celebration of the LGBT community and the fight for equality — but you wouldn't realize that if you saw the top trending hashtag on June 29.

#HeterosexualPrideDay was trending all day. The trend was initiated by @_JackNForTweets with the possible intention of being satirical in nature.

But the people of Twitter wouldn't let that silly hashtag ruin their celebration. Fueled with the power of wit, people shared humorous commentary on Twitter about how ridiculous and unnecessary it would be to have a Heterosexual Pride Day. After all, we have LGBT Pride Month both to celebrate being who you are and to fight back against homophobia — a form of discrimination that straight people have never experienced.

Here are 13 tongue-in-cheek tweets that stood up to #HeterosexualPrideDay, and in turn reinforced the need for LGBT Pride Month.
