The Yale Daily News has corrected an erroneous report that a scheduled appearance by porn star Brent Corrigan at Co-op Pride Month had been canceled because reps for Corrigan had demanded more money.

Corrigan took to his blog with claims faculty and students canceled his scheduled appearance because they didn’t find him “appropriate.” Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Cooperative coordinator Alejandro Bustillos said the decision was made for a variety of reasons, including an overbooked calendar.

The original story included information from Bustillos that Corrigan was demanding more money than organizers thought necessary. The current story notes and corrects that misinformation.

He said planners could not find a suitable “forum” for him to take part in that day.

Corrigan wrote on his blog last week, “Various esteemed professors ... and a few students were vocal enough in their opposition to my presence on campus. They didn’t find me appropriate for the scholarly adults that attend Yale University.”
