Star Trek star George Takei appears to have started the online campaign to reclaim the label Proud Boys from the far-right white supremacist group.
The words Proud Boys took on a whole new meaning this weekend as gay men flooded Twitter with messages of love and acceptance using the hashtag #ProudBoys.
And the man who started it posted a beautiful picture and message of thanks.
The celebration of LGBT+ pride was a clear attempt to drown out voices of the far-right group with the same name, which made headlines after getting a mention from by President Donald Trump during Tuesday’s first presidential debate.
Even the Canadian military joined the fun.
And so did many more.
