On this St. Patrick's Day some of the biggest names in beer are sitting out the parades in Boston and New York.

That's because parade organizers won't allow LGBT groups to openly march. In New York, Guinness and Heineken withdrew their sponsorship of today's event. Meanwhile, Sam Adams pulled out of Boston's celebration yesterday.

For a look at the lead up is Michelle Garcia, reporter with The Advocate magazine.
