Lavender and Purple Alliance, an LGBTQ+ group, were allowed to take part in the Bronx’s St. Patrick’s Day parade for the first time

BRONX, New York – Members of New York City’s LGBTQ+ community were able to show their pride in Irish heritage on Sunday.

The Bronx’s Throggs Neck St. Patrick’s Day Parade included an LGBTQ+ group for the first time this year.

Founded in 1994, the Lavender and Green Alliance was formed to give queer Irish people a place to celebrate their heritage within the LGBTQ community.

The Alliance was recently denied permission to participate in the Staten Island parade, which refused to allow LGBTQ groups to participate.

On Saturday, members of the alliance said they were happy to celebrate their immigration history and legacy.

The parade began around noon on East Tremont Avenue and Lafayette Avenue.
