His multi-media presentation offers a unique, innovative and entertaining look behind the mask of so-called ex-gay programs.

He is also known for photographing ex-gay poster boy John Paulk in a gay bar in Washington, DC.
“My goal is to educate people on this important topic in an exciting and memorable way,” said Besen, who has spoken at more than 100 leading universities, community organizations, business groups and religious institutions. “This new show is packed with powerful information, yet is very funny. The best entertainment allows people to learn20and laugh at the same time.”
During his hour and a half show, Besen takes the audience on a whirlwind tour of ex-gay ministry and therapy programs. Audiences will learn the history of these groups, the bizarre techniques they use and the political players that finance their efforts.
