‘Truth Wins Out’ to Take on Key Issue In Anti-Gay Campaigns
Washington, DC — As President Bush and Congress prepare to debate gay marriage, a new organization will launch next Wednesday, June 7th to combat so-called “Ex-Gay” ministries and organizations.
“Truth Wins Out will confront a dangerous lie that has buttressed anti-gay campaigns from coast to coast,” said founder and noted activist Wayne Besen. “From school boards to city councils to Congress, a lie is being advanced that sexual orientation is something that can be directed or ‘cured. It’s false, and Truth Wins Out will strike this pillar out from under anti-gay efforts.”
Truth Wins Out will launch at the National Press Club 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. The press conference will also expose the new Right-wing strategy to force “ex-gay” theories into classrooms.
WHO: Truth Wins Out, presenting victims of “ex-gay” efforts.
Wayne Besen, Author, “Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth”
WHAT: A new national organization to combat so-called “ex-gay” efforts and larger Right-wing misinformation campaigns.
WHEN: Wednesday, June 7th, 2006 at 10:00am
WHERE: National Press Club, Zenger Room
529 14th Street NW, Washington, DC
**NOTE** Truth Wins Out will launch in the same week that Focus on the Family convenes in Washington, DC to support President Bush’s effort to ban gay marriage.
