The Myth of “Ex-Gay”

16 08 2007

The local NPR show, Colorado Matters (coincidentally also the bane of my existence), is doing a two part series on Ex-Gay programs (a lot of which are located in that pile of fecal matter we call Colorado Springs).  Today they talk with a lesbian who tried many of the programs and in her words “survived” them – learning that there is nothing wrong with being a lesbian and that it is not something you can just change.  On Friday they will talk with a man who went through the program and is now married with children.  You can listen to the report (after it airs) here.

The woman they will speak with today has started a website:  http://www.beyondexgay.com
