Macy's Protest a Success

The protest that took place at Macy's on Sunday and the enormous amount of phone calls, emails, and letters to the management at Macy's were successful!
Macy's admitted today in In Newsweekly that they had made a "mistake - unquestionably" by removing the mannequins from the gay pride display in downtown
Boston. Macy's East Chairman and CEO said, "Am I regretful that Macy's made a mis-step in this instance? Yes". He also states that the mannequins were not removed because of pressure.
Massresistance, an anti-gay organization, called the demonstration at Macy’s on Sunday, organized by QueerToday.com, a "pathetic protest". However we know that the action we took on Sunday, combined with the letters, phone calls, and emails is what caused Macy's to publicly admit their mistake. Congratulations to all who took action during this whole Macy's mess. (photo: Eric Hess)
