Mayor Walsh advocates for LGBT in Saint Patrick's Day parade

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) -

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.
