Baystate Stonewall Democrat’s St. Patrick’s Day Cocktail Party
Thursday, March 15
7 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Club Café, 209 Columbus Ave., Boston
Bay State Stonewall Democrats invite you to our St. Patrick's Day Cocktail Party at Club Café! As you may know Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender folks have been banned from taking part in the St. Patrick's Day Parade by the homophobic organization the Allied War Veteran’s Council (AWVC).
We have come a long way toward equal rights in Massachusetts, yet every year, on St. Patrick's Day, we are reminded that we have not achieved full equality. This event will further awareness of AWVC's bigotry, and help raise money to support the mission of the Bay State Stonewall Democrats: to advocate within the Democratic Party on behalf of the LGBT community and to promote the ideals and programs of the Democratic Party throughout the LGBT community in Massachusetts.
The Bay State Stonewall Democrats work for elected officials and candidates for election who are supporters of the LGBT community. To continue our support of these people we need your donations.
We ask you to join us on March 15, 2012 at Club Café at 7 p.m., as we gather to honor the work of Bay State Stonewall Democrats and our supporters. Tickets are $30, Students/Seniors $20.

Alternative St. Patrick’s Day March
Sunday, March 18
Please join Veterans For Peace and other peace and social justice organizations for this historic alternative “people’s parade” following the official Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.
Again this year we were denied permission to walk in the “Official Saint Patrick’s Day Parade.”
This year, as last year, we will march immediately following the “official parade.” Our parade is a “people’s parade for peace and justice.” We invite all progressive groups (peace, environmental, women’s rights, civil rights, Occupy Boston, labor, LGBTQ, communities of faith/congregations, etc.) in the greater Boston area to please join us as we follow behind the official parade.
Meeting details: Assemble on D Street between 1st and 3rd Street
- Broadway MBTA stop
- South Boston
- Broadway, MBTA Redline (Look for Vets For Peace flags)
A St. Patrick’s Day LGBT for Felix Fundraiser!
Sunday, March 18
1 p.m. – 3 p.m.
Stella Restaurant, 1525 Washington St., Boston
Mayor Thomas M. Menino, Representative Liz Malia, Representative Byron Rushing, Representative Carl Sciortino & The Committee to Re-Elect Felix G. Arroyo invite you to the 3rd Annual St. Patrick’s Day LGBT for Felix Fundraiser! As you may know the organizers of the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade in South Boston do not allow LGBT groups to march in the parade. In solidarity with the LGBT groups not allowed to march, Councilor Arroyo also does not march. Instead we plan our LGBT event on the same day and time as the parade that excludes LGBT groups. Please join us!
