  SAVE THE DATE MARCH 5th for the ST PATS for ALL parade in neighboring Sunnyside!!
 
 March on your own or with a local group, the Jackson Heights Beautification Group*, in one of the most spirited St. Patricks
Day celebrations. The original politics behind this parade involved the exclusion of gays in the Manhattan parade but it has
now come be a home for many other issues. Phil Donahue is an Honoree this year along with the Anastasia Somoza the human
rights advocate you may have seen at the DNC convention. The speakers start at 1:00 at 43rd Street and Skillman Ave
in Sunnyside. Actual parade starts moving at  2:00pm.
The parade route is relatively short and you are welcome to join
in or step out at any time.

 Come celebrate all that we have achieved positively in celebrating diversity and inclusion in contemporary Ireland and here
in the US! Solidarity is so important at this time.

 **look for the Jackson Heights group signs at the starting point

For those who don't know the history of this inclusive and democratic (small d) parade. It was created some years ago in response to the Manhattan St. Patrick's Day Parade's continuing refusal to allow LGBT organizations to join in. Read more here, http://www.stpatsforall.org/

This year's grand marshals are the outspoken and multi-Emmy-award-winning television host Phil Donahue and human-rights advocate Anastasia Somoza, who addressed the 2016 Democratic National Convention during prime time on its first night.

Look for the JHBG parade and march with us. Gather at 43rd Street and Skillman Avenue
in Sunnyside at 1 p.m. to here speakers, including the grand marshals. Actual parade starts moving at  2. Hope to see you there.
