McCormack performs 'Hate Speech & Love Songs'

"The most moving and powerful program I've ever seen."

That's how one audience member describes "Hate Speech & Love Songs," an innovative program created by award-winning songwriter and performer, Tom McCormack.

McCormack will bring his show to NIU at 8pm Monday, April 26, in the Diversions Lounge of the Holmes Student Center.

"Hate Speech & Love Songs" combines music and personal storytelling with a frank discussion of homophobia and hate to create a presentation that is both entertaining and provocative.

McCormack engages audience members in an honest presentation of issues that encourages openness and discussion.

McCormack, who has recorded three compact discs, has received critical acclaim from Billboard magazine, the Village Voice and MTV. His music has received national radio airplay, and been featured on E! Entertainment Television, Cinemax and PBS. He is creator of the Gay and Lesbian American Music Awards.

McCormack's appearance at NIU is sponsored by Prism, the Presidential Commission on Sexual Orientation, and Unity in Diversity Steering Committee.
