CALLING GAY PARADE’S BLUFF

Catalyst May Issue 2014

On March 19, two days after New York’s St. Patrick’s Day parade, Bill Donohue asked officials at the Heritage of Pride parade, New York’s annual gay march, if he could enter with his own unit, “Straight is Great.” Donohue’s gambit was a ploy: gays had objected to the house rules of the St. Patrick’s Day parade... [Read more...]
