Tim Miller: Artiste
As a member of ACT-UP, a gay and virulently anti-Catholic protest group, he organized and engaged in various acts of civil disobedience that led to numerous arrests of which he remains very proud.
As part of his act, he calls the politicians who took away his NEA grant back in the 1990s, certain "f--- ed up, right-wing senators and congress people in Washington." How dare they.
I had never heard of Tim Miller until this "controversy," which he attributes to "homophobia," blah, blah, blah.
But after reading about him, I watched this video of one of his artistic performances. It's called Glory Box. Check it out. See what you think. Did Villanova make the right decision?
More in my print column tomorrow. But let's face it, for a militantly gay performance artiste there is no such thing as bad publicity.
