Is Michelle Shocked sorry? Anti-gay ranter plans free concert during Pride week

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

Last seen here getting booed off the stage at Yoshi’s in San Francisco after a homophobic rant in March, singer Michelle Shocked plans a doozy of a PR move. She’s booked a free San Francisco concert during Pride week, sponsored by San Francisco Newspaper Co., mothership of the Examiner, SF Weekly and Bay Guardian. As part of the deal, the Examiner will let her publish an op-ed piece, and she’s to give an interview to SF Weekly.

Oh, and did we mention that Shocked’s plans are totally unaffiliated with SF Pride? Chronicle

As for the implicit message, might this classic Brenda Lee number explain it?
