Proud Boys Far-Right Group Becomes LGBT Trend Online

Members of the LGBT community have been making #ProudBoys trend on social media by posting images of gay pride and pictures of themselves with loved ones.

The trend is part of efforts to drown out posts and content related to a far-right, anti-immigrant group of the same name.

Actors, artists and the Canadian armed forces are among those who have shared supportive pictures.

The Proud Boys group has denied being a homophobic organisation.

Since the beginning of last week, the term #ProudBoys has been tweeted more than 88,000 times.The majority of them have been posted since 1 October. That day, former Star Trek actor and LGBT rights activist George Takei suggested on Twitter that “gay guys” should use the hashtag to share pictures of themselves “making out with each other or doing very gay things.”

His tweet also referred to a similar campaign by Korean pop music (K-pop) fans, launched earlier this year. In support of the Black Lives Matter movement, Twitter users flooded social media with pictures of Korean musicians with the hashtags #WhiteLivesMatter and #AllLivesMatter Рtags which have been used online by people critical of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Other participants of the latest #ProudBoys trend have included Bobby Berk, a host of the Netflix show Queer Eye.
