A press conference will be held on April 10th in San Jose, California to counter Focus on the Family’s Love Won Out ex-gay conference. It will take place in The Billy DeFrank GLBT Community Center. Wayne Besen, Executive Director of Truth Wins Out, will be speaking. Says Besen:
“It’s tragic that most of the people attending Love Won Out are parents who are looking for answers in the wrong place. We are speaking out to stop these parents from being exploited and we hope to dispel myths and misconceptions so they can learn to love and accept their gay children.
Others in attendance will be Bill Roth of Catholic Democrats of California and
Aejaie Sellers, DeFrank Center’s CEO/Executive Director. On Saturday, a prayer vigil will be held in front of the church hosting Love Won Out, Abundant Life Christian Fellowship, and a panel discussion on the ex-gay movement will be held at the DeFrank center.
