After years of strong resistance, organizers of New York’s St. Patrick’s Day parade on Wednesday said gays and lesbians will be allowed to march under their own banner for the first time, and Cardinal Timothy Dolan — the parade’s grand marshal next March — has welcomed the move.
In what appears to be a comprise Cardinal Dolan has bowed to allowing LGBT Participants in New York’s St. Patrick’s Parade. However the organizers understand the storm brewing among major corporate sponsors such as Guinness could of had more of a impact on the parade organizers decision. Dolan was bought off by the decision to make him grand marshal of this years parade.
The Rainbow Sash Movement feels the many LGBT people over the years putting pressure on major politicians, and corporate sponsors had more effect than the Cardinal Dolan inept pronouncements of the Catholic Church’s Teaching. Thank you the LGBT Community for your resolve to confront homophobia in New York.
Another obvious victory for LGBT People.
