Shame on Sponsors of Boston Gay Men's Chorus

We posted recently on WCRB's shameful advertising for the Boston Gay Men's Chorus Christmas concert. Now we see (in the print edition of Bay Windows) other major sponsors of this event:

MassCulturalCouncil.org [YOUR TAX $ !!]
Bank of America
M. Steinert & Sons
Stop & Shop
Yale Appliance & Lighting
The Opera House

More on the MassCulturalCouncil:

MCC receives an annual appropriation from the state Legislature and funds from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Wallace Foundation, and others. Details on our budget are available online. In turn, MCC makes thousands of grants directly to non-profit cultural organizations, schools, communities, and individuals artists, through funding programs that use arts, science, and the humanities to build strong, diverse, livable communities. The beneficiaries of these programs comprise a cross-section of the population and citizens in each Massachusetts city and town.
