On Saturday, February 1, the city of Westminster will hold the annual Tet Parade to celebrate the Lunar New Year, and unlike last year, Viet Rainbow of Orange County (VROC) will be marching.
Lunar New Year
The organizers of the Orange County Tet Parade have voted to allow Viet Rainbow to participate. While some are celebrating the reversal of a year-old ban on LGBT Asian organizations, the leaders of Viet Rainbow note that a "code of conduct" will restrict visibility for the organization.
Viet Rainbow of Orange County, a community-based organization working to promote positive visibility and equitable treatment of LGBT people, may potentially be blocked a second time from participating in the Tet Parade, Orange County's annual Lunar New Year celebration, scheduled in February.
