As President Bush
and the U.S. Senate prepare to debate same-sex
marriage this week, a new organization will launch to combat
so-called ex-gay ministries and organizations. Founded
by former Sirius OutQ radio host and activist Wayne
Besen, Truth Wins Out will confront what Besen calls
the "dangerous lie that has buttressed antigay campaigns
from coast to coast...that sexual orientation is
something that can be directed or 'cured.' "
Besen added that his organization "will strike
this pillar out from under antigay efforts."
Truth Wins Out will launch at the National Press
Club in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday with
dramatic personal stories of victims of "ex-gay"
programs, and insights into how ex-gay theories are
woven into nearly all efforts opposed to equality for gay
and lesbian Americans. (Sirius OutQ News)
