Almost two years after beginning my work at XGW I’m now leaving in my official capacity. In those two years my work has changed from being a dutiful author to today where I find the majority of my work is spent behind the scenes; collaborating with gay activists, making films, and talking to the media.

Just a reminder today’s episode of the Montel Williams Show deals entirely with ex-gays and features Alan Chambers, Peterson Toscano, Lance Carroll, Richard Cohen and others. Evidently the taping was a real circus but I’ve been reserving comment until I see how the show is actually edited.

On Thursday the 2007 Soulforce Equality Rides will arrive at their first destinations. Yes, you heard me right, there are two buses this year, one headed east, one headed west. On last year’s Equality Ride participants found themselves unprepared when the dialogues they engaged in turned to the subject of exgays. Ex-gay survivor Peterson Toscano […]
Just a quick reminder, if this video gets enough votes it’ll air on Current.tv’s actual TV station. A while back Mike Ensley of Exodus had an interview posted to Current.tv.
From Peterson Toscano: In speaking with some ex-gay leaders recently, I see the desperate need they have to hear some of our stories. Never once has an ex-gay program I attended ever done any sort of follow-up. I mean I can’t buy a soy latte these days without having to fill out a survey about […]
