WHAT

Exodus and its affiliated organizations often use personal stories of transformation to market their programs. These stories are also used — implicitly and explicitly — to justify political opposition to LGBT equality.

By sharing our stories, survivors of ex-gay experiences can become a powerful force for social justice. We can create a more honest picture of ex-gay programs, reveal the societal pressures that influence people to seek change and expose the cynical exploitation of ex-gay success stories for political purposes.

The Ex-Gay Survivor’s Conference will offer opportunities and resources to help you share stories, practice speaking to the media, and reflect on how your story can be used to make a difference. You will also be given opportunities to record your own experiences through film and on the web.
