Moral Panic in Massachusetts?

Irvine -- The tragic killing of a 10-year-old Cambridge boy allegedly by the two purported male lovers is not only sparking demands for the return of the death penalty but outrage at a gay group, NAMBLA, whose literature was allegedly found among one defendent's belongings. According to its literature, NAMBLA advocates lowering the age of consent and supports consensual relationships between men and boys. "Subversity," a KUCI public affairs show, Tuesday evening delves into this controversy with an interview with NAMBLA spokesman Bill Andriette, who himself joined the organization when he was just 15. Subversity airs from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County.

Andriette, who was interviewed by radio show host David Brudnoy last week in Boston, has appeared on the CNN's Larry King Show defending NAMBLA during an earlier controversy. On Subversity, he will address the topic, "Moral Panic in Massachusetts?" and discuss the role of gay groups in the controversy. Andriette will be interviewed by show host Daniel C. Tsang.

Listeners can call (714) 824-KUCI to chat with Andriette, who was until last year, the long-time editor of the NAMBLA Bulletin. To read for yourself what its literature says, you can check out its Website, now mirrored at:
