Former "Ex-Gay" Activist: I Wouldn't Date An "Ex-Gay" Myself, They Can't Be Trusted

"Many people I knew suspected all along that change—true change where all same-sex attractions disappear or become rare and incidental, and heterosexual attractions take their place—never happened. I can say I’ve never met an 'ex-gay' man I thought was not still attracted to men and would not go back to gay relationships under the right circumstances. One of my colleagues tried to fix me up with an 'ex-gay' man when I was still single. I said, 'No way. I have no interest in dating an ex-gay man. I don’t trust that they’re actually ex-gay.' My colleague said, 'The Bible says people can change—‘and such were some of you’—so you have to believe it’s true. It’s incredibly defamatory of you to believe otherwise.' The particular 'ex-gay' man who was to be my date was caught having sex with a man about a year later." - Former Family Research Council "ex-gay" activist Yvette Schneider, in a lengthy interview with GLAAD's Jeremy Hooper.
