Sizzla under attack by the gays again

Sizzla under attack by the gays again

Dancehall artiste Sizzla Kalonji has fallen under the baleful radar of gay rights groups once again.

The singer's July 13 concert, organised by the Mateel Community Center in northern California, has been cancelled. Board member of the Mateel Community Garth Epling stated that his executive was split on the matter.

 

“The majority of us decided that we should listen to our membership and our community. We are in a struggling financial state. We see the potential for another money-making show, but I don't think it's really worth it. And as a community centre, we can't stand behind that,” Epling is quoted as saying.

 

Reports indicate that people who have purchased tickets for the cancelled event will be refunded.

 

Meanwhile, the gay rights advocates are lauding the decision by Mateel to pull Sizzla, whose given name is Miguel Collins. Todd Larsen, founder of the Queer Humboldt group, said he and his colleagues are grateful.

 

“We really appreciate the board of Mateel listening to our community and adhering to their mission statement of embracing diversity.”

 

Gay rights groups have attempted to sabotage reggae acts who they claim espouse hate speech and anti-gay sentiments.

 

In May 2014, Queen Ifrica was pulled as headliner of an event at Amazura Concert Hall in Queens, New York,

Other reggae acts including Buju Banton and Capleton had their performances cancelled and tour schedules altered due to pressure from gay rights advocates.
