An Orange County Judge has refused to grant an injunction for a gay Vietnamese-American coalition that would allow it to take part in this weekend's annual Tet Parade in Westminster's Little Saigon. The Partnership of Viet Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Organizations has marched in past parades despite objections from religious groups, but is being excluded this year. The event was previously sponsored by the city of Westminster, but this year it is being run by a community federation that fears other participants will pull out if the gay group is allowed. The Orange County Register reports Superior Court Judge Geoffrey Glass ruled against forcing the group's inclusion on Thursday.
