Why Is D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty Honoring PFOX?

Regina Griggs, the executive director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays, probably has a certificate of appreciation hanging on her wall that you do not. Hers is from Adrian Fenty, known to the masses as the (gay-friendly) mayor of Washington D.C., and was delivered in November. It was given “in recognition of your dedication, commitment, and outstanding contributions as Executive Director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays,” and was circulated in a press release PFOX issued yesterday. The Gay and Lesbian Activist Alliance, based in D.C., is all “Uh, WTF?” Which is understandable, given PFOX is a hack group that, while entitled to spew its bullshit, is actually doing much harm to gay people. And for that, Fenty is sorry.
