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

The first comes from the Illinois Family Institute and Linda Jernigan who puts on a brave front and offers her book for sale. The second comes from The Advocate and describes the cancellation of ex-gay pride month (or now “ex-gay half-month”).

From one point of view, things look rosy; from another, things are comically bad.

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.

    Maybe she and her friends could still hold a parade. A very short one. Only one float. No marching band.
