Today was Focus on the Family’s final Love Won Out road show, which took place in Birmingham, Alabama. Truth Wins Out’s Executive Director Wayne Besen joined more than 75 people to protest the misinformation being spread at the mega-church where the “ex-gay” extravaganza took place.
If you like the fact that Truth Wins Out is fighting back against such lies, please consider a tax-deductible contribution today. Only with your help can we continue our efforts exposing lies and anti-gay distortions.
Today’s protest included members from: The Alliance for GLBT Equality at UAB, Equality Alabama Birmingham, Central Alabama Pride, Covenant Community Church and PFLAG. Several media outlets covered the presentation. Movie star Glenn Shadix, an Alabama native was on-hand. On Thursday, he shared his story of undergoing shock therapy in his youth to unsuccessfully become heterosexual.
We will provide video of the protest later. In the meantime, here are a few pictures.
