But this year that voting bloc seemed a little less united. Thousands of gays refused to come ...accusing the parade's organizers of ignoring their concerns.

A few NATIONAL gay and lesbian groups, which grassroots organizations claim are more worried about corporate sponsorship than pressing the issues.

"This used to be organized on a public basis. It's now being organized to serve their very narrow specific instutional ends, which are funding and membership."
