St. Patrick's Day is a time-honored holiday meant to bring people together, often in a drunken stupor; it should NOT be an instrument to tear them apart!
The celebration isn't about race, gender, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, or even ethnicity — it's about wearing green &
binge drinking until you see Leprechauns enjoying an adult beverage responsibly!
Whether it's dying a river green or simply having a parade, most major U.S. celebrate the holiday in some official capacity. Unfortunately, the festivities in several cities — including Boston & NYC — are actually quite intolerant to the LGBT community!
They've gone so far as to forbid LGBT supporters from marching openly in the parade!!!
