Smithsonian Under Fire For Gay Portraiture Exhibit : NPR http://www.npr.org Christian leaders and Republican members of Congress are speaking out against the National Portrait Gallery’s Hide/Seek exhibit. One work — a 1987 video about the suffering caused by AIDS — has already been removed from the show. Religious leaders objected to its depictions of a crucifix crawling with ants.

Warning! You may not want to watch this with small children or at work. Here is the link to the video that was taken out: http://mrzine.monthlyreview.org/2010/wojnarowicz041210.html
