You read about Michelle Shocked's anti-gay rant. Now you can listen to it, and the whole uncomfortable rest of her set, thanks to this recording that surfaced on Towleroad. The shit hits the folk singer starting at 4:37:
This evidence seems to run counter to Shocked's statement that she was "misinterpreted."
As many of you know by now, Meander's Kitchen was scheduled to host Michelle Shocked on April 26th, and have cancelled that show. Instead, we have rescheduled a Queer Burlesque and Cabaret for that night as a benefit for local queer youth. By supporting our youth and helping to create a sense of place, community and self, we help to short circuit the cultural influences that so often leave us feeling alone, out of place, and living with self-hatred and denial. This is only one aspect of fighting bigotry, but it one that is key to it Getting Better, and one that fills me personally with hope.
I hope we'll see you April 26th. More details to come. *Smooches*
now, for the deranged vs. bigoted argument, I see no distinction between the two. when I listen to Victoria Jackson or Ted Nugent or Tony Perkins or Bill Donohue, I'm listening to someone who is clearly deranged. insane in the membrane. loonie-tunes, belong in a hospital.
