As the Globe told us this morning, a "small contingent" of gay South Boston residents quietly marched in today's parade.
Also marching today: Scott Lively, a Springfield minister who wants to make it illegal to promote gay rights and who has written that the Nazis were especially evil because their leaders, including Hitler, were gay.
A talk by Lively in Uganda was the beginning of an effort to make homosexuality there punishable by death, although he says that the death penalty would not be his first preference.
Lively is running for governor this year.
