PFOX to Exhibit at Values Voter Summit and Promote Second Annual Ex-Gay Awareness Conference Set for October 3-4 in Washington, D.C.

"We are excited to be a part of this group of game-changers at the Values Voter Summit this weekend in D.C.," said PFOX Executive Director Regina Griggs. "Here at PFOX, we encourage unconditional love for family members and friends who identify as homosexual or transgender, and we are looking forward to sharing our mission as well as information about our upcoming conference with the thousands of attendees who are joining together to bring about positive change.

"Those at the Summit will be able to meet PFOX families as well as register for the upcoming PFOX conference, where former ambassador Alan Keyes and American Family Association's Sandy Rios will be featured speakers. The conference is a wonderful opportunity for people to hear the positive testimonies of members the ex-gay community and learn how they can help spread the good news that change is possible."

No, PFOX, you only think you will be promoting Ex-Gay Awareness Month. In truth, you'll be helping us promote the toxic, dangerous, anti-scientific, downright eliminationist ideals to which mainstream conservatives still so often pander, even at the obvious detriment of their chosen political party's national profile.
