Peaches H. Christ!

This is an actual correction, which ran Thursday in the San Francisco Chronicle newspaper.

SF Chronicle correction

I know that's a bit hard to read, so here's what it says:

Corrections, Aug. 16

Beyond Castro church's drag-queen fuss, Aug. 16, Bay Area, C1

C.W. Nevius' column about Most Holy Redeemer banning drag queen performers incorrectly stated that entertainer Peaches Christ appeared at an event at the church's hall with a dildo shaped like a crucifix. He did not appear at the event, nor does he use the prop.

C.W. Nevius follows up with these details:

Peaches had been booked to perform at the church, but the performance was canceled.

Furthermore, Peaches told him, he would never "perform with something as tired as a crucifix dildo."

Nevius concludes: "So it wasn't that the image was offensive, it was that it was totally passé."

Nevius therefore had to write the correction, above, for publication. "A colleague looked at it [before publication] and offered a three-word synopsis," he says: "best correction ever."
