BONUS POST: St. Patrick's Day Discrimination Update! Chrisine Quinn (and "the GAYS") won't be marching in New York City Today.

New York City Council Speaker Christine C. Quinn is an openly Gay Irish American.

Once again, as reported in the NY Times, she's been invited to participate in the annual New York City's St. Patrick's Day Parade, provided she doesn't display ANYTHING hinting at gay pride - they'll allow her to celebrate being Irish, but only if she's willing to be closeted about being a Lesbian.

She's boycotted it since 2006.

Instead, she'll be at a reception at the Obama White house, meeting the Prime Minister of Ireland tonight.

But isn't it crazy that she can't be part of the 150,000 people who march in today's parade in New York?

To protest, and to once again break the news about all the things the GAYS and the IRISH have in common, here's my vlog, "Good News for Gays and Leprechauns!"

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
