Week of Actions to Counter Houston ‘Pray Away the Gay’ Conference
August 31, 2011
Live in Texas? You could be taking part in a very important series of protests and events in the next week.
On September 10, the infamous “ex-gay” organization Exodus International will host “Love Won Out” in Houston, which is a quarterly road show promoting the false and dangerous idea that one can “pray away the gay.”
In response, a coalition of local and national LGBT organizations will host a week-long series of educational and entertainment events highlighting the harm caused by “ex-gay” programs. The week will conclude with a Saturday protest outside Love Won Out and an MCC church service highlighting the values of love, inclusion, diversity, tolerance, pluralism, and acceptance.
