Americans For Truth About Homosexuality
Read the latest news about Americans For Truth About Homosexuality, a nonprofit organization led by antigay activist Peter LaBarbera that denies the fact that sexual orientation is inborn. Americans For Truth About Homosexuality believes that same-sex attraction can be cured and is therefore a proponent of the “ex-gay” movement. The Southern Poverty Law Center classified AFTAH as an antigay hate group in 2010 for work, which includes opposing the Employment Non-Discrimination Act and advocating for a government-led report on the health risks posed by sex between men.
