We’re in The St. Patrick’s Day Parade!
Brendan Fay, founder and chair of the Lavender & Green Alliance/ Muintir Aerach na hÉireann said in the release that the invitation to march “sends a positive message across the Irish Cultural landscape. As LGBT Irish Americans we thank John Lahey and the members of the Board for this historic decision which reflects the feelings of most Irish and Irish Americans. With the decision, we cross a historic threshold and our members will proudly march up Fifth Avenue with our banner.”
Since 2000, Dignity/New York has always been a proud supporter of St. Pat’s for All Parade in Sunnyside, Queens organized by Brendan to welcome everyone including LGBT groups.
Brendan Fay extends his welcome to all Irish LGBT people and their allies to join the Lavender & Green contingent on Fifth Avenue next year.
