The energy on twitter yesterday was reframing Proud Boys and reclaiming it (if only for a day) from the extreme-right wing group. It was about reframing the right-wing group that uses the name “Proud Boys.” Taking it for the LGBTQ+ community that they stand against (among others), instead trending it showing proud male members of the LGBTQ community.

The energy and stance were terrific, and it shows how you can start to reclaim a world! I’d love to see this becoming a thing more likely — because for THAT proud boy? The LGBTQ and proud? Oh, I can stand for that
