Tell the Smithsonian to Stop Censoring Gay Artists

This petition was published by Mike Blasenstein on Dec 10, 2010

We, the undersigned, support free speech for all people by condemning the censorship of the arts in the United States, and by opposing the attempts of anti-gay forces to silence gay Americans in every sphere of public life.

Therefore, WE CALL ON THE SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION TO REVERSE ITS CENSORSHIP of gay artist David Wojnarowicz and restore his work, "A Fire in My Belly," to the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.
