Ecuador’s Ministry Of Health Names Lesbian Minister, Pledges To Close “Ex-Gay” Torture Camps

After months of international outcry and a change.org petition with over 100,000 signatures, the Ecuadorian government has finally agreed to close over 200 ex-gay torture camps where lesbians and other deviants were “cured” of the gay though battering, sexual abuse, starvation, sleep deprivation, threat of rape, constant ridicule, and throwing urine on them.

The welcome news also dovetails with another announcement: President Rafael Correa has chosen Carina Vance Mafla (right), a lesbian activist who led the fight against closing these horrendous camps, as his new Minister of Health. We’re sure Mafla will shut these camps down in as expediently as possible.
