O.C. Tet Parade Won't Ban Gays, Community Decides
By Anh Do January 4, 2014
After barring lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from last year's Tet parade in Orange County, Vietnamese American community members voted 51-36 on Saturday to include them in the Lunar New Year event scheduled for Feb. 1.
Supporters called the move historic, pushing opponents not to tarnish the community's image by locking out a vocal segment of its immigrant population.
"When there's a vote to include or exclude, it makes me sad. But we have always been fighting for inclusion and equality -- and we knew that inclusion and equality will eventually triumph," said Hieu Nguyen, founder of Viet Rainbow of Orange County. The group formed after last year's battles with the Vietnamese American Federation of Southern California, the organization leading the charge against visible LGBT participation.
Last November, federation members voted against LGBT participation for 2014. But at a City Council meeting in December in Westminster -- where the parade will be held -- federation head Nghia X. Nguyen agreed to meet with gay leaders to try to find a compromise for inclusion.

Because when you think about Vietnamese New Year, GAYS are the first thing that come to mind
Are you telling me there were never any homosexuals in or attending the parade in years past?
I'm sure they were there. They weren't excluded.
You don't want to be "included". You want to be showcased and celebrated for your homosexuality.
The last celebration of Tet I attended was in 1968. It was a bomb. Actually, several dozen of them.
Evil is as evil does.....
So these Vietnamese sold their souls for a parade permit. Enjoy the furnace boys!
“.....vocal segment of its immigrant population.”
Vocal, indeed. More like loud, pushy and obnoxious.
This should be trumpeted by the left as evidence gays should be in the military.
They managed to infiltrate the Vietnamese without firing a shot.
