City officials to decide whether to allow 'Straight Pride Parade' in Modesto

MODESTO (KGO) -- Officials in Modesto are expected to decide whether to allow a "Straight Pride Parade."

The "National Straight Pride Coalition" is requesting a permit for the event on Aug. 24.

Opponents packed a city council meeting on Wednesday. They say the people organizing the parade are anti-LGBTQ, racist and filled with hate.

Bay Area chiropractor Don Grundmann is a leader of the Straight Pride Coalition. He also spoke at Wednesday's meeting.

Critics say, up until a few days ago, The Straight Pride Coalition's website promoted white supremacy.
