    I had no idea that LGBT were excluded in that parade.

      every single year and every single year they are hauled off in paddy wagons and booked for disturbing the peace. This is done quietly by the NYPD and not widely covered in the media.

      The link below gives a little of the background. Also, there is a St. Patricks Day For All parade in Queens, started by an amazing guy, Brendan Fay.

        That's incredible. My husband just laughed that even Ireland has given in but not NYC.

          historically and presently, in the church hierarchy and they pride themselves on being bigots. Also, has a lot to do with all manner of political machinations. Totally embarrassing for the city.
