LGBT groups make progress in some St. Patrick's Day parades, while corporation rethink their sponsorship in others.
The Boston Beer Company, which owns Sam Adams beer, has issued a statement on its sponsorship of the Boston St. Patrick's Day Parade. Boston Beer, like other sponsors have been pressured to speak out about the exclusion of LGBT organizations, like the LGBT Veterans for Equality.
Following a meeting at City Hall, the South Boston Allied Veterans Council issued a press release claiming MassEquality's LGBT Veterans of Equality had misrepresented itself, was not a legitimate veterans' group, and was "using a ploy to enter this parade under false pretenses."
