p.s. visit our website, www.asianprideproject.org/lunarnewyear to see the tremendous support from many prominent people and Chinatown- and nationally-based organizations. They are stepping up in solidarity so that we can all step out on the streets of Chinatown together with our families! Our South Asian and Irish sisters and brothers from SALGA and St. Pat’s for All, who have struggled to be included in their community parades, will also be joining us as honored members of our contingent this year.
