The Article 8 Alliance, a “pro-family” (or, more specifically, anti-gay) group, has succeeded in convincing grocery store chains Stop & Shop and Shaw’s in Massachusetts from stocking the free gay newspaper Bay Windows. However, a Stop & Shop spokesperson told the Boston Herald that they are negotiating with the paper’s editors to bring Bay Windows back without the personal ads.
Article 8 Alliance director Brian Camenker predicted “a bigger backlash” if the store brings the paper back, adding that Bay Windows is “really sort of disgusting, anti-family, anti-religion. The paper is full of, like, really gross stuff.”
Dan Kennedy covers this story at Media Log, his weblog for the Boston Phoenix, a paper that is also barred from Stop & Shop because of its personal ads.
