Matt Dechaine, one of the men who pitched in with photos of himself and his husband in efforts to overtake the hashtag, said his goal was simply to spread joy.
"Seeing the hashtag was so uplifting," Dechaine, who is from England, told CNN."It feels like the movement for positive change for all is gathering momentum all the time and I'm glad to be a small part of it. By coming together rooted in respect and love for each other, the world can be so much better!"[…]
"Next year my husband I will celebrate 25 years together. We had to move to Canada to legally marry and adopt 2 of our sons. We're back in the US. Our family has grown. And we're fighting to save this country. Here's us voting for Biden, Harris and a Blue ticket. #ProudBoys," Bryce Tache tweeted.
Dechaine also shared a picture of him and his husband."The reclaiming of #ProudBoys is wonderful. Here's me and my husband. Together for 20 years and married for 3. Both very proud boys," he tweeted.
