Sandy Rios speech

Thanks to your gifts, Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX), was able to exhibit at the Values Voter Summit last week. Sponsored by the Family Research Council, American Family Association, Heritage Foundation and Liberty Counsel, the annual conference attracted over 2000 people.  Many stopped by our PFOX exhibit booth to take home our ex-gay materials to their families, friends, and churches.


While speakers Sen. Ted Cruz, Dr. Ben Carson, Glenn Beck and numerous others gave excellent speeches, our favorite speaker was Sandy Rios, host of Sandy Rios In The Morning talk show on AFR radio. In her speech, Sandy Rios mentioned the plight of the ex-gay community:


“The other thing we don’t know is that there is an ex-gay movement. Did you know that September was Ex-Gay Awareness Month? They are everywhere and the reason you don’t hear about them is because they are maligned and threatened . . . Have you seen anybody tell their story on television? There are tons of ex-gays with fabulous stories but the American people don’t know about that!”

Also at the Values Voter conference was the premiere of PFOX’s new brochure, Is Someone in Your Church Gay? – The ABC’s of How to Respond, at our PFOX exhibit booth.  If you didn’t attend the Values Voter Summit, you can still take a peek at our newest brochure at  Let us know what you think!


Many thanks for your gifts which make our resources and message widely available for such a time as this. The need is great, and with your help, we are able to reap the harvest for Him.
