"The mayors of two major cities have opted out of marching in their cities' St. Patrick's Day parades, in what they call a show of support for gay groups that have historically been excluded from the events.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio will not march in Monday's parade in Manhattan, and Boston Mayor Martin Walsh sat out Sunday's parade in South Boston.
"I simply disagree with the organizers of that parade in their exclusion of some individuals in this city," de Blasio said at a news conference last month."
Do you think they did the right thing?
