Chicago Gay Paper Nixes Ad From Controversial Sex Researcher – Mark Fitzgerald

Chicago – The Chicago Free Press will no longer publish an ad soliciting gay males for a sex study because of the involvement of a controversial Northwestern University professor, the gay-oriented weekly declared in its current issue.

The action has stirred strong emotions among defenders and opponents of the work of the professor, J. Michael Bailey.

A transsexual activist, Lynn Conway, hailed the Free Press in an e-mail for taking “a courageous action … (that) is a new and very effective way to defend against rogue scientists such as Bailey.”
