Washington Post letter

Dear Washington Post Editor,

 

Your Feb. 5 article [Potomac students get fliers saying therapy turns students straight] is misleading.  Our flyer is not about therapy.  Ex-gays are a diverse group and many have never undergone therapy.  Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays (PFOX) is not a therapeutic organization.

 

Our flyer urged tolerance for sexual orientation, including former homosexuals.  PFOX supports all individuals’ right to self-determination.  Gay groups regularly distribute flyers to the students.  Ex-gay organizations should have the same rights that gay groups currently enjoy.  Anything less is sexual orientation discrimination.

 

Sincerely,

 

Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays

PFOX
