LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
The Massena Neighborhood Center recently refused to accept donations from the proceeds of a drag show. A neighborhood center official says it is due to what they believe to be the show’s sexually explicit content. One of the show’s organizers, Massena native Michael Cameron, who performs female impersonation under the name Amber Skyy, says the show is mainly cross-dressed men and women lip-syncing songs with comedy sprinkled in.
Should charitable organizations reject donations based on how the money is raised?
