'Truth Wins OUT' launched this week
Wayne Besen launched a new organization this week to counter the ex-gay movement: Truth Wins OUT. The timing is appropriate since earlier this week the Bush, Jr., Administration invited Exodus leaders to a White House event promoting the anti-gay constitutional amendment publicity stunt. It seems the ex-gay movement may be nearing the peak of it's visibility and influence. I like TWO's goals: "Counter Right Wing Propaganda" and "Expose The ‘Ex-Gay’ Myth". I hope it can be developed into something more than Besen's personal project. I have heard several former ex-gay activists talk about the need to have ex-ex-gays ready to respond to ex-gay claims. It appears TWO is going to try to fulfill this need.
