Wayne Besen: "As the author of Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth, I have seen the enormous destruction caused by reparative therapists. As the founder of Truth Wins Out, one of the nation's primary watchdogs of the "ex-gay" industry, I have had to pick up the pieces of shattered families and littered lives.This scam can't be ended soon enough. While no one has transformed from gay to straight, there have been too many people who have gone from whole to hurting, or from alive to dead. It's time to end this ugly nightmare before more peoples' lives are destroyed."
