It should come as no surprise at this point, but Proud Boys—including some so proud that they hid their faces—flashed "white power" signs during an anti-LGBTQ+ "Protect the Children" rally in Ft. Lauderdale last weekend.
The rally was held on Saturday, Dec. 3. and was organized by Gays Against Groomers and Moms For Liberty, according to Ford Fischer
, who said that trans-rights counter protesters shouted "These queers bash back" and "Hey hey, ho ho, bigots gotta go."
Approximately 20 Proud Boys were in attendance at the rally, but were outnumbered by roughly 50 counter protesters.
According to the Anti- Defamation League (ADL
), the rally was not in response to any specific ant-LGBTQ+ event, but was widely promoted across right wing outlets, including OANN, Breitbart and the anti-Semitic Goyim Defense League.
