Mayor Walsh has responded to a group of organizers in his home town of South Boston, after they denied ‘OUTVETS’ a chance to participate in this year's St Patrick’s Day Parade in Southie.
‘OUTVETS’ is a group of LGBT veterans who have participated in the Boston St Patrick’s Day Parade for the past two years.
Mayor Walsh responded to their decision with a statement:
“I will not tolerate discrimination in our city of any form. We are one Boston, which means we are a fully inclusive city… I will not be marching in the parade unless this is resolved. Anyone who values what our city stands for should do the same."
