Edmonton: The end of Gay Pride.

Andy Ngo reports that the 2019 Edmonton Pride Festival was cancelled after a long list of demands from social justice activists. 'They wanted the entire structure & funding to go to centering "QTIBPOC trans folx," including a vigil to victims of colonialism & capitalism.'

Identity politics reaches its logical conclusion.

Gay Pride is officially over. May it rest in peace.

And, really, isn't this how it needed to end?

If you're gay, be gay; if you're straight, be straight; if a woman, be a woman, if a man, be a man. Know who you are and be yourself; respect your fellow humans and expect the same from them. Live honorably and seek responsibility. That's real pride.
