LGBTQIA+ Twitter is having a ball shutting down the hashtag #HeterosexualPrideDay, which began trending overnight after a Texas man named Sam tweeted about straight people attending Gay Pride parades.

"Why do 'straight' men and women go to the gay pride parades?" he tweeted, according to the New York Daily News, before creating the hashtag as a 'response' to the USA's Pride Month.

Some 'celebrated' with photos of iconic heterosexual couples:
