Once again I am sitting in awe of Keith Boykin, Jasmyne Cannick, and the other bloggers who refused to allow the homophobic concert with Beenie Man and TKO take place this month in New York. This is just another example of how powerful our community can be when decide to collectively stand up against homophobia.
Lately I've read some not so nice comments about Keith and the work he does on a national level on his blog. Say what you will about him, but one thing is for sure he is a leader and a driving force in our community. You may not always agree with him and rally behind his causes, but I think he genuinely has the black SGL community's best interest at heart.
Check out a great article at AOL Black Voicesfeaturing Jasmyne Cannick, and also a complete timeline of the events leading up to the cancellation of the concert at Frank Leon Roberts page.
