Widespread outrage over the denial of OutVets, a gay veterans group to march in Boston's famous St. Patrick's Day Parade (even though they marched in 2015, 2016) has gone all of the way to the mayor's office.
Mayor Marty Walsh issued the following statement at the news:
“I will not tolerate discrimination in our city of any form. We are one Boston, which means we are a fully inclusive city. I will not be marching in the parade unless this is resolved. Anyone who values what our city stands for should do the same,”
We previously reported that the parade's grand marshal, Dan Magoon, stepped down from the parade after the denial.
