    NEW YORK (AP) — The Catholic League will be allowed to march with an anti-gay-marriage banner in New York City's annual gay-pride parade, organizers said on the heels of a St. Patrick's Day parade prohibition on gay-rights signs and subsequent boycott that drew widespread attention.

    Parade organizer David Studinski said Thursday he has no problem with Catholic League President Bill Donohue's plan to participate in the June 29 parade.
    "His group's presence affirms the need for this year's pride theme, 'We Have Won When We're One,'" Studinski said in a statement. "Straight is great — as long as there's no hate."
    Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of the gay-rights group GLAAD, said several straight and Catholic organizations have previously marched alongside LGBT groups, according to Newsday.
    "As a fellow Irish New Yorker, I'm hoping Bill will march with me at NYC Pride," Ellis said.
    On Monday, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Guinness beer boycotted the city's annual St. Patrick's Day parade because organizers wouldn't allow participants to carry pro-gay signs.
    And in Boston, Mayor Martin Walsh opted out of his city's St. Patrick's parade this week after talks broke down that would have allowed a gay veterans group to march. Late last week, The Boston Beer Company, brewer of Samuel Adams, pulled its support.
