Jose Luis Maccarone lived as an ex-gay for over 10 years. Peterson Toscano met him during his stay at Love in Action, an ex-gay residential program in Memphis, Tennessee. In 2000 Jose Luis moved from his home in Argentina to Madrid to serve as Exodus Interational’s first missionary. After a few years, he left Exodus and came out gay.

Peterson recently traveled to Madrid to meet with Jose Luis. In a series of YouTube videos, Peterson talked to Jose Luis about his experiences with the the ex-gay movement. It’s an enlightening and moving testimony.
