Mayor Bill de Blasio told hundreds of participants at a lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender-friendly St. Patrick’s Day parade on Sunday that a society for all is one that embraces and respects everyone.
The St. Pat’s for All parade stepped off in Queens under a heavy snowfall. It was held as an alternative to the city’s centuries-old St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Manhattan, which for years has excluded gay groups and this year is scheduled for March 17.
De Blasio arrived about 15 minutes late sporting a lavender shirt and green tie. Despite the snow and cold he said, “It’s a sunny day in my world.”[…]
The two grand marshals at the 15th annual St. Pat’s for All parade were longtime human rights activist Kerry Kennedy and Tony Award-winning actor Brian O’Byrne.
Patti Lowenhaupt, a retired art teacher and Queens resident who showed up for the parade, said people “are all human beings underneath it all.”
“We here in Queens have the ability to accept all kinds of people,” Lowenhaupt said.
Several protesters, however, stood on the side holding signs that read “Sodom & Gomorrah.”
Other elected officials participating in the St. Pat’s for All parade included City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and city Comptroller Scott Stringer.
