In a historic first, LGBT organizations were allowed to march in this year’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Boston.
After years of boycotting the parade over lack of inclusiveness, Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh joined those celebrating in the parade. Also attending were Governor Charlie Baker and Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito.
OUTVETS, which includes lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender veterans, was invited to be a part of the festivities.
Progress, folks, progress!
