(Holyoke, MA)  —  It’s still not clear whether Mass Equality will march in the Holyoke St. Patrick’s parade.  The gay rights group was invited to Holyoke by Mayor Morse after being banned from the annual parade in South Boston.  The group say it has to consider logistical issues and will get back to the city later. Meanwhile, the closer it gets to March 17, the less likely it is things will work out, because parade organizers have logistical issues of their own to consider.  The Holyoke High School Gay Straight Alliance now says it wants to march, too.  Any group that wants to join the parade at his late date would have to apply, pay a fee and limit their participation to three or four people.
