Protest at St. Pat's Parade

Irish Queers will once again lead a demo against the St. Patrick's Day Parade on March 17 to protest the exclusion of LGBT Irish groups since the now-defunct Irish Lesbian and Gay Organization first applied in 1991.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Senator Hillary Clinton, a Democratic presidential hopeful, and other elected officials continue to participate in the parade despite comments by its leader last year that allowing gays in their “Catholic” parade would be like “Nazis… joining an Israeli parade.”

The protest begins at 10:30 a.m. on Fifth Avenue at West 58th St. For more info, go to http://www.irishqueers.org.
