Ex-Gays at CPAC

You may have heard about CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference held every year in Washington DC at http://www.conservative.org/cpac/

As in the past, PFOX will be an exhibitor at the CPAC conference.  PFOX thanks CPAC for again inviting us to exhibit. 


Several conservative organizations have decided to boycott the CPAC Conference, because GoProud, an anti-exgay organization, is now a CPAC sponsor.  But PFOX will attend and be a visible message for all conference attendees.  We will distribute fact-based educational materials.


Gay organizations instruct their members to reject ex-gays and homosexuals who refuse to self-identify as "gay."  This rejection is a form of heterophobia that can be overcome with education and outreach.  Gay activists cannot claim sympathy as victims when they victimize their own.  Homosexuality has multiple causes and people have experienced it differently in their lives.  If a gay person's sense of well-being is dependent on all other people with same-sex attractions having had the same experience that they did, then that person is in a dangerous place.  In fact, this is what has caused persecution of ex-gays.  


The demonization of ex-gays by gays themselves is a sad end to the long struggle for tolerance by the gay community.  That ex-gays and their supporters are now oppressed by the same people who until recently were victimized themselves, demonstrates how far the gay rights movement has come.  Indeed, a new chapter in the movement has begun – the right of homosexuals and lesbians to leave unwanted homosexuality. 


PFOX supports families and the ex-gay community, and defends your right to provide fact-based education about sexual orientation.  PFOX offers hope for change to men and women with unwanted same-sex attractions.  PFOX advocates for ex-gay equal rights.  Without financial support, PFOX cannot get our message out in an unfriendly ex-gay media blackout.


Congress and the President worked hard to affirm homosexuality while denying equality to ex-gays.  Please make a secure online donation or send a check to fund travel expenses for ex-gays traveling to the national CPAC conference.  Remember, no one does it but PFOX!
