Indigo Girls (USA)

BR599uJCcAAHOPPThe Indigo Girls came under fire from transgender activists, led by male Red Durkin, for playing at the Michigan Womyn’s Music Festival in 2013. As a result, the Indigo Girls released a statement that 2013 would be the last year they perform at MWMF and that they would make an announcement from the stage protesting the women-only policy of MWMF. The duo earned ire from transgender activists when they did not, in fact, make a statement from the stage.
