St. Patrick's Day parades in IRELAND include LGBT people without a problem. You'd think that parades in other countries for St. Patrick's Day would follow their lead.

Even the Irish minister of foreign affairs spoke up on the issue back in 2011 and stated that excluding groups such as LGBT ones from participating in St. Patrick's Day events is "not Irish."

Here's that bit from the news back in 2011: http://thinkprogress.org/politics/2011/03/17/...

Drag is for the PRIDE parade, and celebrates the the drag queens who kicked off the Stonewall Uprising.
