A couple months ago, I wrote about Ted Cox:
An atheist, Ted Cox, spent the past two years going undercover as a gay man undergoing gay-to-straight therapy programs run by Christian groups (as if there were any other kind).
What he found was precisely what you would think: These programs do nothing to “convert” you from gay to straight. They just try to make you suppress your (gay) sexual urges. They make up their own “facts” — you’re not born with it, it’s the result of a traumatic childhood, Jesus can save you from The Gay, etc.
Cox is giving a *free* talk called “What I Learned at Straight Camp” at the University of California, Davis this Friday evening in (room) Chemistry 194.
There will be a live “demonstration” of what went down.
Here are the other details:
Doors to the event open at 5:30 p.m. and the speech is scheduled to begin at 6 p.m. The audience is encouraged to come a bit early since room capacity is strictly enforced and doors close when the speech begins.
This speech is being hosted by the Agnostic & Atheist Student Association (AgASA). AgASA currently meets Tuesdays at 6pm in Wellman 26. All are welcome.
