LGBT veterans to march in Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade as organizers reverse decision
A late reversal by organizers of the St. Patrick’s Day parade in Boston will now allow LGBT veterans to participate. An earlier decision denying the LGBT group, OutVets, the right to march set off a firestorm—the mayor, the governor of Massachusetts and big sponsors threatened to skip the parade. OutVets says it will proudly march in honor of the brave men and women who served the country.
