St. Pat’s For All Parade
Mayor Bill de Blasio joined the LGBT-friendly alternative to New York City’s main St. Patrick’s Day Parade, which excluded official gay groups for years.
Sunnyside’s annual St. Pat’s for All Parade will be held as planned Sunday, despite the fact that there will be no subway service through the neighborhood.
According to a tweet from de Blasio’s office, the mayor will deliver remarks and march in the St. Pat’s For All parade in Queens.
An early St. Patrick’s Day was held in Queens Sunday, by a group that says the Fifth Avenue Parade set to take to the street in about two weeks is not inclusive.
