The LGBT Community Proudly Reclaimed The Hashtag #ProudBoys


President Donald Trump made a reference to an extremist group at the first presidential debate named ‘Proud Boys’, and the term was trending on Twitter in the last few days. However, if you search for #ProudBoys, you’ll be presently surprised!

Although the hashtag was recently used in tweets pertaining to the far right, namely a Southern Poverty Law Center hate group called the Proud Boys, members of the LGBTQ+ community got things into their own hands and decided to redefine the meaning of it. The hashtag was flooded with messages of love, acceptance, positivity, and gay-pride!
