Boston Mayor Marty Walsh made a push to allow gay groups to march in Southie's Saint Patrick's Day parade in March.
However, parade organizers said they have no plans to lift the decades-old ban.
The mayor said he'll boycott the parade if the gay community is not allowed to take part in the celebration.
