"Ex-Gay" Conference Protest in Boston 4/28

There will be a protest tomorrow in Boston, Massachusetts of the so called "ex-gay" conference by Exodus International which unsuccessfully attempts to alter sexual orientation and gender identity. The consequences of this pseudo-scientific "therapy" often results in depression, self esteem damage, and in some instances suicide.

Below is a video of Zack, a 16 year old gay teen forced into "ex-gay" therapy against his will. His story mobilized people to speak up against this unethical and ineffective practice.


The protest will be held from 12:00PM to 3:00PM at the Park street station near the fountain. Speakers include: Arline Isaacson of The Massachusetts Gay and Lesbian Political Caucus, Stewart Landers, Scott Gortikov of MassEquality, Tom Lang of KnowThyNeighbor.org, Paul Sousa of Join the Impact MA, and keynote speaker Wayne Besen, founder of TruthWinsOut.org.
