LIFEbeat cancels concert after objections to performances of homophobic artists Beenie Man and TOK. Keith Boykin: “LIFEbeat also blamed ‘a select group of activists’ for its decision.

The sad part is that LIFEbeat still doesn’t get it. Their statement fails to address the issue of homophobia and its connection to the spread of HIV/AIDS.”
