Relayed from Wayne Besen:

‘Ex-gays’ to be focus of three Cleveland events
By Anthony Glassman, Gay People’s Chronicle (Cleveland), Nov. 14, 2003

“Ex-gays” will be the center of attention in Cleveland over the next week, with a nationally-known author coming to the area to speak against reparative therapy and two competing events at the campus of Baldwin-Wallace College.

Author Wayne Besen, formerly of the Human Rights Campaign, will be at the Cleveland Lesbian-Gay Center on Saturday, November 15 to read from his new book Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth. As an HRC staffer, Besen photographed “ex-gay” poster boy John Paulk in a Washington, D.C. gay bar in 2000.

Besen’s presentation will be at 2:30pm at the Cleveland Lesbian-Gay Center, 6600 Detroit Ave. For more information, call 216-651-5428.

Four days later in Berea, Campus Crusade for Christ and the Intervarsity Christian Fellowship have organized an “ex-gay” event to convince people that sexuality can be changed through prayer. Baldwin-Wallace College Allies and Lambda are presenting gay-friendly clergy and psychological views.
