(BOSTON) — Organizers of Boston's St. Patrick's Day parade appear to have had a change of heart about barring a group of gay veterans from marching.
Parade organizers tweeted Friday an "acceptance letter" was signed by the Allied War Veterans Council that will allow OutVets to march in the March 19 parade.
The council and OutVets haven't responded to messages seeking comment.
This week's decision to bar OutVets from marching drew immediate condemnation from high-profile politicians and stirred up a furor on social media.
OutVets was first allowed to participate in the parade in 2015.
