Husband: John Paulk
Location: Portland, Ore.
In a 1998 New York Times full-page ad, Paulk proclaimed, "I’m living proof that Truth can set you free."
In the ad she says, "… Even though I had a lot of male friends, I just wasn’t attracted to men sexually." Yet, in Love Won Out, a book she co-wrote with John, Anne acknowledges she felt sexual desire for a man named Mark. "He appealed to me sexually," Anne writes. "We were drawn together by sheer animal magnetism. … I came to see I could be physically attracted to a male, but I just couldn’t surrender my heart to him."
Her discussions of her past "lesbianism" indicate little sexual attraction toward women during that period, and no same-sex sexual behavior.
