Mayor Martin J. Walsh released the following statement regarding the exclusion of OUTVETS from this year's St. Patrick's Day parade:

"I will not tolerate discrimination in our city of any form. We are one Boston, which means we are a fully inclusive city. I will not be marching in the parade unless this is resolved. Anyone who values what our city stands for should do the same."
