Here’s a little background on the event from their website:
The St. Pat’s for All parade celebrates the diversity of the Irish and Irish American communities of New York. First held in 2000, St.Pat’s for All cherishes and celebrates an inclusive St. Patrick’s season. Ours is the first in the 260 years + of Irish parades in New York City to be open and welcoming to all who wish to share in the spirit of the day. We err on the side of hospitality. Our theme “cherishing all the children of the nation equally” is taken from the 1916 Easter Proclamation of the Irish Republic. It is a vision drawn from our past and a guide for our present & future.
This parade is New York’s most diverse St. Patrick’s parade, embracing LGBT contingents, community groups, children’s bands, Irish organizations and religious and civic groups, all in celebration of Ireland!
Unique among the St. Patrick’s parades our is open and welcoming to ALL who wish to share in the hospitable and festive spirit of the day.
