Performer Peterson Toscano takes his one-man show, “Doin’ Time in the Homo No Mo Halfway House — How I Survived the Ex-Gay Movement!”, to Washington, D.C., this week. The show is being hosted locally by Westminster Presbyterian Church.
The Washington Blade reviewed Toscano’s show, consisting of comedy and Biblical inspiration, on Jan. 23.
Religion also still plays a major role in Toscano’s life, though he graduated from the Love in Action program in 1999 — but remained gay. He is now a Quaker and says he harbors no ill will toward church members.
“I am not angry at the conservative church for the ex-gay work they do. They are not evil; they are misguided,” he says. “They do not realize the damage they do to others … and to themselves.”
