Ex-Homosexual Group Sparks Controversy with ‘Nobody Is Born Gay’ Billboard

Ex-Homosexual Group Sparks Controversy with 'Nobody Is Born Gay' Billboard

A billboard on Interstate 95 is stirring up controversy in downtown Richmond. It says “nobody is born gay,” and the organization claims to help people who have “overcome” being gay. “Identical Twins,” it reads. “One is gay, one is not. Nobody is born gay.”

It’s an ad posted on the interstate by a group called PFOX – Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays. It’s an in-your-face message hitting where it hurts for many in the gay community.

“I am shocked and really disappointed that at the end of 2014, we have a billboard in the middle of our city that says that kind of hate,” said Beth Panilaitis, Executive Director at Rosmy, an organization that supports LGBTQ youth.

The organization that posted the billboard did not return our media inquiry online, or a phone call. Their website says, “People deserve to know the truth about the many men, women, and children who have made a decision to change their lives,” and that “it’s important to remember that sexual orientation is a matter of self-affirmation and public declaration.”
