Tweeted this out and sharing it to the ThinkQueerly community, Kira Wertz.

The idea that the Oklahoma GOP, of all organizations, ought to be at Pride is beyond absurd. The OK GOP is is responsible for profoundly and egregiously oppressing OK LGBTQ people. And I don’t mean historically — I mean right this very minute.

Having OK Republicans officially participating in Pride would be shockingly insulting to queer people everywhere.

Pride is absolutely a protest and in Oklahoma, the protest is squarely focused on the state Republican party.
