OTTAWA – Thousands of ticket-holding Ottawa Oprah fans need to brace themselves for a lot of shouting about foreskin.

About two dozen protesters are expected to greet fan heading to Scotiabank Place Wednesday night for Oprah Winfrey's sold out show.

They'll be dressed in a variety of "provocative" outfits, according to Vancouver-based protest organizer Glen Callender, including men in white jumpsuits with red crotches.

The first protests, held in Vancouver in January, featured a drag-queen dressed up as the talk show legend.

Callender refers to them as circuses, and while the approach is a bit off-the-wall, the message is serious.

Representing what he calls the Canadian Foreskin Awareness Project, or Can-Fap for short, Callender says Winfrey is the spokeswoman for a skin cream made using baby boys' foreskin.

He calls Winfrey a hypocrite because she speaks out against female genital mutilation, while using this face cream.
