Gay artist reschedules event scrapped by Villanova

After Villanova University cancels event, gay artist reschedules workshop for another school By The Associated Press

VILLANOVA, Pa. (AP) ' A gay performance artist whose planned five-day workshop on personal narrative was scrapped by Villanova University has rescheduled the event at another college in the Philadelphia suburbs.

Tim Miller says the workshop will now be held at Bryn Mawr College from April 16-20. He says Muhlenberg College in Allentown will also sponsor a lecture he was supposed to give at Villanova, which is a private, Catholic university.

The Rev. Peter Donohue, Villanova's president, says Miller's workshop was scrapped amid concerns about what he called "explicit, graphic and sexual content." Miller, however, says that's not true. He says Villanova officials are mischaracterizing his performance work.

Miller says he previously held a similar workshop at DePaul, the nation's largest Catholic University.
