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.

Antigay leaders from Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, Liberty Counsel, and Mission America picketed the Washington, D.C., office of the Human Rights Campaign to protest LGBT Pride Month.
