Gay Activist Richard Socarides Talks About His "Ex-Gay" Advocate Father

Former Clinton White House advisor and LGBT activist Richard Socarides has made a video about his father, Dr. Charles Socarides, the co-founder of NARTH who is widely considered the creator of "ex-gay therapy."

Via I'm From Driftwood:
Dr. Charles Socarides didn’t just believe that homosexuality could be cured; he was one of the most sought-after therapists for people who wanted to become straight. And for Richard, that hit a little too close to home. In his twenties, at the insistence of his sister and his therapist, Richard decided it was time to tell the very man who is known for curing gay people that his own son is gay. Watch the video below to see how Richard’s coming out experience unfolded.
