July Is "Ex-Gay" Pride Month
We are actively working to receive a Presidential Proclamation from The White House to commemorate Ex-Gay Pride Month and are speaking with members of Congress to recognize and participate in our first annual Awareness Event on the National Mall and Evening Dinner/Reception in Washington, DC. See below for more details on Ex-Gay Pride!A White House proclamation? Oh, my sides. The above was written by PFOX co-founder and now completely butch heterosexual Christopher Doyle, who threw a huge flaming hissy fit at me in Philadelphia a few years ago when I wouldn't stop taking his picture outside the NARTH convention. "Ssssstop it! I don't need thissssss!"
When is Ex-Gay Pride? VoV is strategically holding Ex-Gay Pride Month in July, after June's annual gay pride month, in order to draw attention to the ever-increasing phenomenon of ex-gays or former homosexuals; that is, individuals who formerly had unwanted same-sex attractions and/or lived an LGBT-identified life, but now do not. These individuals may be in heterosexual relationships, pursuing heterosexuality, or living celibate lives as former homosexuals.
