Conservative institute hosts ‘Ex-Gay Visibility Day’: ‘Stories that deserve to be heard’

A Christian educational nonprofit on Sunday hosted an “Ex-Gay Visibility Day” to counter Pride Month festivities to be hosted nationwide this June.

“The gay lobby makes sure everyone knows Junes is ‘Pride Month,’ but they certainly won’t acknowledge the many people who have left the LGBT identity behind. That’s why the Ruth Institute is declaring the first Sunday of June to be Ex-Gay Visibility Day,” stated Jennifer Roback Morse, founder and president of the Ruth Institute, in a news release.

The institute is a nonprofit interfaith organization that refutes the tenets of the sexual revolution and advances testimonials and scientific studies upholding the traditional Christian values of marriage, family, and human sexuality.

Morse taught economics at Yale and George Mason universities for 15 years and is a former feminist professor turned traditional family activist.

In a video discussing Ex-Gay Visibility Day, she said there are many people who have turned away from LGBT lifestyle — “all with stories that deserve to be heard.”

“When you get to know them, you’ll see there are many pathways into LBGT identity, and many pathways out,” she said, adding that throughout June the institute will tout their stories. “The very existence of ex-gays proves that ‘born that way’ cannot be the whole story.”

The institute’s website states the effort “celebrates brave men and women who have quietly defied one of the strongest social taboos of our time: putting pride aside and leaving the gay identity behind.”

One video posted on the topic over the weekend as part of the institute’s programming features Elizabeth Woning, founder of the Changed Movement, Wayne Blakely, founder of Know His Love Ministries, and Andrew Rodriguez, a licensed clinical therapist.

Woning is a former lesbian; Blakely lived for nearly 40 years as a gay man; and Rodriguez educates “on the truth about sexuality and therapy for unwanted same-sex attraction,” states the video description.
