Guinness pulls out of St. Patty’s parade over LGBT ban

Guinness beer has pulled its sponsorship from New York’s famed St. Patrick’s day parade over a controversial policy that prohibits gays and lesbians from marching openly, according to reports.

“Guinness has a strong history of supporting diversity and being an advocate for equality for all,” the company said in a statement on the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation website.

“We were hopeful that the policy of exclusion would be reversed for this year’s parade. As this has not come to pass, Guinness has withdrawn its participation. We will continue to work with community leaders to ensure that future parades have an inclusionary policy.”

The move came after the legendary gay bar, the Stonewall Inn, announced it would dump the beer from its shelves in protest of the parade’s anti-gay policy. The protest was cancelled after the Guinness announcement.

When did Stonewall get a legal permit to operate? It was a mob run speakeasy when it was shuttered by the police, spawning a 3 day hissyfit.

Well, so now, Sam Adams and Guinness have yielded to the queers.

Let me know when Pabst Blue Ribbon and Budweiser give in.

If the constipated customers of Stonewall dump the beer (which has already been purchased from the distributor) it costs the brewery NADA.

According to the article ...

“That leaves Ford Motors as the only major American corporation that continues to sponsor the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Guinness joins beer companies Heineken and Sam Adams who have also pulled sponsorships from St. Patrick’s Day Parades.”

Never a fan of Sam Adams or Guinness. Their stout sucks compared to Deschutes Obsidian Stout. That will put hair on your chest (so they wouldn’t care if gays boycott). Frankly it bothers me that a political group can have so much power that they can scare corporations so easily.

WTF is going on here? There’s probably 3 queers that drink Guinness and it won’t hurt if they boycott while I would guess that a shunning by their 99.999% heterosexual base might.

Maybe it is Murphy’s that is a competitive of Guiness over in Ireland and it seems similar. http://www.themediacaptain.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/03/Screen-shot-2013-03-17-at-8.36.30-AM.png

Stil, this is a shame, I wonder if it is the American branch or the Irish headquarters making this decision.

Ridiculous. Like several other posters have asked...

What do St Patrick’s Day parades have to do with sexual preference?

AND I’m done with them as well.

I am so sick and tired of companies catering to sexual lifestyles for what they perceive is market share. HELLO!!! What’s wrong with me, Mr. straight white guy??? Not sexually deviant enough for ya??? You had NOOOO problem taking my cash for YEARS but now I and many like me are all the sudden the bad people because we don’t like what the MINORITY is into?? Have fun with that demographic keeping your sales up and your people paid.
Good bye Guinness, I hope your other distilleries burn down after being a 22 year patron.

Actually, gays CAN march in the parade. They just can’t march as a group to advertise their gayness.

You’d think, from the publicity, that the parade controllers were picking out individual gays from various groups and tossing them out.

Whatever. Why would any gay want to promote St. Patrick in a parade in his honor?

Drank my first Guiness fifty years ago at the bar in the Peninsula Hotel, Hong Kong.

I've drunk my last Guinness. The way these breweries are caving to the queers, I have no choice but to return to brewing my own, as I did in my youth.

I think it was the 1990s or early 2000s when Guiness went for the gay market.

Relax, don’t worry, have a homebrew.

Guiness didn’t have that much market share, but Sam Adams and Heiniken did, but there are plenty of breweries that can fill any gap. I’m not sure just what they hope to accomplish here, what lesson they are imparting?

Didn’t Chick-fil-A teach any lessons?

I'm sure there have been many gay people in St Patricks day parades before. They were just people in a parade. It's really these people that should be mad— the militant part of the homosexual community wants to parade around in green beads, boas and thongs and yell “we're queer and we're here” and that's not what a St Patricks day parade is about. And stupid companies are caving to their demands.

I can usually maintain some semblance of optimism, but I'm increasingly convinced that America, as it was intended at it's founding, is over.

I pine for the day when these companies’ attempts to pander to the loud few (for business’ sake) wind up getting killed in their business/revenue due to their PC stances.

I just wish it was immediate: Make a dumb/pandering/PC decision...INSTANTLY see your business plummet.

I wish for that day....

“INSTANTLY see your business plummet.”

It didn’t take too long when Builders Emporium announced their anti-RKBA stance. Or for KMart to take a hit, or JC Penney. Staples stock showed an immediate drop until their apology.

Hold on, boycott personally, and expect State Run Media to hide any effect.

“BTW...Blue Ribbon is “hipster” all the way. “

PBR really is not a bad beer, hipster or no, and despite low-price stigma. I’ve done blind tests with my brewclub and the general public cannot distinguish the difference between PBR, Miller, Bud. All of them use rice syrup as well as barley malt extract, along with some real grain.

And PBR so far does not care who marches in which parade.

Because every public parade from now on has to include participants celebrating homosexual acts - bring the kids! Entertainment for the entire family! Have the orgy-makers got their own float at Disney World ... yet?
