Man Protests Own Art Exhibit for Exclusion of Gay-Themed Work


John Paul Blanchette, a Massachusetts artist protested his own art exhibit after a Barnes & Noble in Framingham decided to exclude one of his paintings because it is gay-themed.

Said Blanchette: "It's so ridiculous that when I met with (the manager) it took a minute
before I was like, 'Oh, she's actually serious. There are romance book covers in there that are more offensive."
