Remembering the St. Pats parade controversy of 1995

The first year the Saint Patrick's Day Parade was legally permitted to ban gay and lesbian groups from participating, a separate parade was held in Cambridge. This year a second "Peace" parade was held in Southie for gay and lesbian groups, as well as anti-war groups.
Share your stories about the experience and whether you may have attended either alternate parade.
