Is it bad for a straight person to go to pride?

I got invited to go to pride this year by a friend and her other friend. Both of them are bisexual and I am straight. I even mentioned it to my friend asking if it was even appropriate for me to go as a straight person. She said “well you support gay/LGBTQ+ rights. We need allies. I can’t see why that would be a bad thing.”

At pride, for the first time in a long time I didn’t really feel judged for who I am and that felt great! We also went to a gay bar afterwards and I didn’t have random guys hit on me which also was nice. There was just a bunch of lesbians there and they were just interested in conversation which was completely fine with me.

But there’s always those people with unpopular opinions that say straight people should not attend pride because they are not LGBTQ+.

So do you think it’s appropriate?
