National Gay and Lesbian Task Force Withdraws from LGBT "Unity 2004" Event at Democratic National Convention
Statement by Matt Foreman, Executive Director
"We are dismayed that Margaret Cho has been disinvited to perform at the LGBT Unity 2004 event scheduled for Monday, July 26 in Boston. We had been a co-sponsor of this event.
Throughout her career, Ms. Cho has been a staunch supporter of equal rights for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans, has contributed her time and talent to dozens of LGBT fundraising events, and is much loved by our community. We were proud to give her a Task Force Leadership Award last year. Ms. Cho has said, 'I'm more than bi(sexual).' She is, indeed, one of us.
Under these circumstances, we must regretfully withdraw our support for this event."
