Out@NBCUniversal Makes St. Patrick's Day History


Thomas Roberts joined other NBCUniversal employees celebrating the day by marching in the parade as proud LGBTs and allies.

For some, such as New York Mayor Bill De Blasio, the conciliatory gesture that allowed LGBT employees of NBCUniversal to march wasn't convincing enough to end a boycott of the annual St. Patrick's Day Parade. But it's still momentous that for the first time in the parade's history, an LGBT-identified group marched on Tuesday.

In her editorial on this site, Kerry Kennedy, RFK's daughter, writes of the history of the parade as a celebration of the gains made in the battle between Irish-Americans and prejudice. She also reminds us that NBC is the official broadcaster of the parade.

But none of the controversy kept green-clad NBC employees from sharing their experiences and photos on Twitter and Facebook as shown below.
