(Holyoke, MA) — A group banned from marching in the St. Patrick’s parade in South Boston could end up marching in Holyoke. A move is afoot to accommodate the gay rights group Mass Equality. The Holyoke Parade Committee hasn’t yet seen an application from the group, but Mayor Alex Morse says he hopes an arrangement can be made. The Holyoke parade is inclusive and does not ban gays, but logistical issues might make the request tough at this late date.
