And with less than a week to go before Sunday’s parade in Little Saigon, the group had yet to get official word on its application. Members of the group were scheduled to meet with organizers Monday.
"We like to be a part of the parade because the Tet event is very important. It’s like Thanksgiving in American culture," Tran said.
Gay groups have participated for the past three years but they were not welcomed by the Vietnamese Interfaith Council in America, which called for a boycott of the parade because of the gay groups’ participation. The city allowed the group to participate.
