Russian gay rights activist Nikolay Alekseyev will speak in California after all, with an engagement scheduled in San Francisco Monday evening.

Alekseyev's California stops on his U.S. tour, which were to include West Hollywood and Palm Springs as well, had been canceled after a fracas over allegations that he had made anti-Semitic statements on his blog. Alekseyev said he is not anti-Semitic and that the statements were misinterpreted.

According to a press release from Chicago's Gay Liberation Network, which is sponsoring the tour, those who wish to hear Alekseyev in San Francisco should meet at 5:30 p.m. in front of the previously scheduled venue, the Metropolitan Community Church at 150 Eureka St., and then the group will go to a nearby location for the talk.
