LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Why can't the LGBT community be Irish for a day? | UPDATED

I have always loved a good parade. I grew up in New York and had the good fortune of watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade every year. It was a family tradition for us. We saw it in person at least once, but always watched it on TV while dinner was cooking.

COMMENTARY: St. Patrick's Day parades are anti-gay, just like the black church

Irish and African-American LGBTQ communities share a lot in common when it comes to being excluded from iconic institutions in their communities.

For LGBTQ African-Americans, it's the black church, and for LGBTQ Irish, it's the St. Patrick's Day Parade.

St. Patrick's Day has rolled around again, and like previous March 17 celebrations nationwide, its LGBTQ communities are not invited. As a contentious and protracted argument for now over two decades, parade officials have a difficult time grasping the notion that being Irish and gay is also part of their heritage.
