The gays are banned again from marching in the St Patrick's day parade in Boston

Boston Globe:

Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender groups will not be marching in the annual South Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade Sunday after two of them received rejection letters from organizers.

MassEquality, a nonprofit organization that advocates for the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender residents, applied to march in the parade organized by the Allied War Veterans Council.

The veterans group said no, citing the 1995 US Supreme Court case Hurley v. Irish-American Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Group of Boston, which ruled that parade organizers do have a legal right to decide who marches in the parade.
