Statement from District 2 City Council Candidate Corey Dinopoulos
Candidate for Boston City Council, Corey Dinopoulos released the following statement regarding the exclusion of OUTVETS from this year's St. Patrick's Day parade in South Boston:
"The City of Boston is an inclusive city. That means recognizing and celebrating the LGBTQ men and women of Boston who have served our country. The recent decision made by the South Boston Allied War Veterans Council to exclude these veterans does not reflect our civic values. I am hopeful we can work on a resolution, and I stand by to assist both sides to come to an agreement. I will not participate in the St. Patrick's Day Parade on Sunday, March 19th, unless there is an opportunity for OUTVETS to march as well."
