Organizers Cancel ‘Ex-Gay Pride Month’ Citing Vague ‘Security Threats’

Just a word on the cancellation of the “ex-gay pride month:” For the cancellation to have any credibility, the organizers need to reveal the nature of the security concerns. I have a hard time believing Voice for the Voiceless would be voiceless about real concerns.
