New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade

“For this first time in history, New York City’s famed St. Patrick’s Day parade will welcome an LGBT organization into its ranks,” reports MSNBC. “But equality groups and prominent political allies, including Mayor Bill de Blasio, remain unsatisfied with the parade’s level of inclusion.”

Do people really care about the sexuality of people performing on a parade?

Hi — thanks for your question. Yes, this is a big issue. Previously openly LGBT people were prevented from participating in the parade simply due to their sexual orientation. Similarly Boston used to prevent gay people from marching, but that has changed too: http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/16/us/boston-celebrates-end-of-ban-as-gays-march-in-st-patricks-parade.html
