15 Jun 2007

Correction

One correction: Robbie Samuels (one of the people interviewed in this story) was not one of the organizers of the campaign to cancel the dyke march's initial headline performer. Robbie's intro should have said "...a member of the Boston chapter of the National Organization of Men against Sexism, which participated in the march..." and not, "...an activist who organized to cancel Bitch's performance..." Sorry for the confusion.
