This week in Irvine, California, Exodus International is hosting the Exodus Freedom Conference, where hundreds of ex-gays are gathering to see what new tricks executive vice president Randy Thomas has in store for them to trick their heads into staying on the straight and narrow. Randy went around the conference and interviewed a few of his guests, and, in the spirit of Gay Pride Month, I thought it would be lovely to meet them!
Some of these folks are first-timers, while others are veteran Exodus conference attendees, plying Alan Chambers & Co. with their cash in search of a reconciliation between faith and lusting after human beings with the same genitals. And then there are guys like Ethan, who’s “looking forward to just meeting a lot of new people.” Yes, that is what these conferences are about.
Now what hotel room is that Justin in?
Now here’s a behind the scenes look at what goes into making this conference a success. Probably lots of Excel spreadsheets and gay porn.
