’Ex-Gay’ Group to Host Palm Beach Event
People Can Change, a nonprofit for "men who have successfully transitioned away from unwanted homosexuality" will be hosting an event in Palm Beach from Nov. 30-Dec. 2.
According to its website, the event will work like the somewhat infamous "healing therapy" sessions practiced by other "ex-gay" groups around the country.
"Journey Into Manhood is a 48-hour immersion in intensive emotional-healing work, designed specifically for men who are self-motivated and serious about resolving unwanted homosexual attractions," they write.
"We limit the use of classroom-style lectures. Instead, we create opportunities for you to experience healing, not just learn about it. One simple example: You won’t just talk about what it is like to look another man in the eyes - you’ll stand eye to eye with another man while we help you process whatever feelings might arise."
The exact location of the event is only revealed after participants register.
The group has also released a survey of 474 people from 19 different countries who have tried to get the gayness away from them. According to their "study," more than half (55 percent) said counseling was effective in "causing the frequency and intensity of their homosexual attractions to diminish."
