The Big Apple turned green on Monday for St. Patrick's Day.
But some big names refused to join in because of gay and lesbian groups not being allowed to march openly.
On Sunday, March 16 beer-maker Guinness announced it was dropping its sponsorship of the parade. That announcement came just days after Heineken said it too was pulling its support.
However, beer makers weren’t the only ones to drop out. Last month Mayor Bill De Blasio and New York's City Council said they would boycott the parade.
According to the New York Times, De Blasio is the first mayor to skip the parade in more than two decades.
Gay rights groups are applauding, but some of New York’s religious leaders have expressed outrage over the mayoral snub.
