It appears that the Gay veterans group (OUTVETS), which has marched in the two previous St. Patrick’s Day parades in Boston is saying it was denied spot in South Boston parade later this month.
OUTVETS posted a statement on its Facebook page late Tuesday. Ed Flynn, a South Boston resident and a member of the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council — the parade’s organizer — confirmed that the group did not receive approval to participate in the March 19th parade.
Thus far neither Mayor Walsh nor Governor Baker have commented and the organizers of the parade which voted 9-4 against allowing the veterans group to march in the parade had not returned emails by the time the article published.
