Proud Boys

Far-right and neo-fascist male-only organization

The Proud Boys is a far-right, neo-fascist and male-only political organization that promotes and engages in political violence in the United States and Canada. While the group claims to reject racism, several members have been affiliated with white supremacy, and the Proud Boys has been described by US intelligence organizations as an extremist group. The group originated in the far-right Taki's Magazine in 2016 under the leadership of Vice Media co-founder and former commentator Gavin McInnes, taking its name from the song "Proud of Your Boy" from the 2011 Disney musical Aladdin. Although the Proud Boys emerged as part of the alt-right, McInnes distanced himself from this movement in early 2017, saying the Proud Boys was "alt-light" while the alt-right's focus was race. The re-branding effort intensified following the white supremacist Unite the Right rally. Since early 2019, Enrique Tarrio, who identifies as Afro-Cuban, has been the chairman of the Proud Boys.
