The Augusta Free Press in Virginia profiles Greater Hope exgay activist Jeff Watros, who says he doesn’t understand why he’s perceived as a loud, pushy street-corner solicitor.

But the Free Press quickly explains it to him: He has chosen to affiliate with Exodus, the antigay political advocacy network.

All in all, the story nicely portrays the human journey of Watros while contrasting the self-perceived innocence of local exgay advocates with their self-defeating choice of political sponsorships. The views of Watros and Exodus lobbyist Randy Thomas are balanced with those of gay author Wayne Besen and Staunton, Va.-area equality activist Linda Czyzyk.
