The latest news about so-called reparative, conversion, and ex-gay therapy and the quest to outlaw it. Condemned by the American Psychiatric Association, ex-gay therapy is based on the belief that a person can be "cured" of their sexual attraction and that conversion from homosexuality to heterosexuality is possible.
