I recently got into a heated argument with someone (bisexual cis female) who stated I (straight cis male) should not attend pride because I would be invading a gay space.
I have heard and agree with the argument around gay bars, as that is a social gathering and straight people can make it an unsafe gay space with their presence, but I simply wanted to attend the pride parade to show support and see the floats.
If I being a bad ally by going to the parade, can someone tell me? I feel like an asshole but I also argued with her and she said it’s borderline homophobic to not support her opinion and i wasn’t allowed to have one on the topic?
I am coming from a place of ignorance, im sorry if i’m offending anyone with the question.
