MAD PRIDE vs. MASS MEDIA


You've heard of GAY PRIDE? Make room for MAD PRIDE.

But it looks like big corporate media is getting a case of the nerves about mad pride.

ABC-TV did a segment on Primetime Outsiders about MAD PRIDE on 25 August 2009, featuring an interview with activist Bonfire Madigan Shive. Unfortunately, ABC-TV distorted the message about Mad Pride and -- like so much mass media -- luridly sensationalized violence by a few people with psychiatric labels.

For an open letter to ABC-TV producer Ia Robinson from David Oaks, click here:
