Daily Talker: South Boston Parade Compromise
The battle over the South Boston Saint Patrick’s Day parade continues.
Meantime, parade organizers are still in talks with leaders of the gay community.
Parade organizers have agreed to allow a gay group to march in the parade, but they do not want the group of gay veterans to wear t-shirts or hold signs that include the word “gay” or refer to sexual orientation. They say it does not fit with the parade’s Irish and military themes.
But, then why march at all if the gay group cannot reveal who they are?
Both sides, along with Boston Mayor Marty Walsh are trying to come up with a compromise.
But, what’s the answer? What do you think the best compromise would be to please both sides in the Saint Patrick’s Day Parade?
