First LGBT Group Ever Marches in NYC St. Patrick's Day

March 21, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Shooting for the Village Voice, I followed the first ever LGBT group allowed to march in the over 250 year St. Patrick's Day Parade. The group, Out@NBCUniversal marched with little fanfare toward the end of the parade. 


Out@NBCUniversal lines up to march in the 2015 St. Patrick's Day Parade in NYC. This marks the first time a LGBT group was allowed to in the 254 year old parade. MSNBC Live's Thomas Roberts wore a jaket with family members photos attached to the back. Members of the Catholic church wave at the Out@NBCUniversal marchers as they walk by. A man gives the Out@NBCUniversal marchers a lone thumbs down. A supporter claps and cheers support for the Out@NBCUniversal marchers. A marcher poses for a photo wearing a Out@NBCUniversal sash.
