A Parade of Pride: New York City And St. Patrick's Day

            New York City’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade will feature a second LGBT group next year. The parade’s board of directors announced that it has selected the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender group “The Lavender & Green Alliance” to join “Out@NBC,” which this year became the first gay group to march in the parade’s history.
It’s won’t be just green beer available anymore! There will be “Trojan Greens” thrown from the floats to the crowd, with packages that say,  “You can get lucky like the Irish! Now with mini-latex  Shamrocks for his/her enjoyment!”
                One might think that there are already more than enough parades celebrating LGBT supremacy, but, apparently, one would be wrong.  Besides all the specifically Gay Pride parades and events around the country, there is now a strong LGBT presence in almost every parade of every type, celebrating almost all aspects of- and events and occasions pertaining to- humanity.
                One virtually never hears about “Heterosexual Pride” parades or events, which is surpassingly odd given that they are responsible for producing all human life on the planet, not excluding lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgenders.  Can we get a little love and respect- and dare I say Pride-  directed their way, maybe? Or is that asking too much (of the hyper-tolerant)?
                Will there be three LGBT groups needed for the 2017 St. Patty’s Day parade? Where will this end? There will be Gay Day parades instead of May Day parades. “Homo-coming” parades will replace homecoming parades on college campuses around the country…if they haven’t already.
                It is likely that the Rose Bowl parade will morph into the “Bro’s Bowel” parade.("Trojan: New Year? New Rear? See the world through rose-colored asses. No thorns here!).  Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade will soon become the, “Racy Spanksgiving Day ™” parade.
                With the direction our culture is headed, I don’t even want to contemplate what might become the norm for Easter parades. (“See my Easter ‘bonnet,’ with all the frills upon it, sweety?!”).
