‘Straight Pride’ organizer has a gay son and he’s speaking out
The son of Modesto, California, Straight Pride Parade organizer Mylinda Mason is gay and he’s been speaking out against his hateful mother.
Mylinda and other white supremacists and Christian conservatives in Modesto are planning a Straight Pride Parade to “celebrate heterosexuality, masculinity-femininity, babies-born and unborn, Western civilization, our wonderful country, Christianity.”
Mason’s son Matthew Mason has already spoken out against his mother. He was homeschooled up to the end of high school and punished if he didn’t say what she wanted him to say.
“Any sort of ideological deviation from her philosophy was grounds for punishment, so I quickly learned that I had to say what she wanted me to say and do what she wanted me to do,” he told NBC News.
At age 28, he’s speaking out against his mother’s Straight Pride Parade: “We don’t want hate in Modesto. I am making sure Modesto is not a place for hate speech.”
