After two car rides, two train rides, one subway and one tube ride and an overnight flight, I arrived safe and sound into London and spent much of the day on my own in Greenwich taking pictures, seeing the sites and strolling in the park. Fortunately it was a sunny day, which will help with jet lag.
I spoke briefly with a BBC radio reporter about the ex-gay conference going on this weekend in London featuring NARTH’s Joseph Nicolosi. A friend of mine actually received “treatment” from Nicolosi. Dan Gonzales tells about his experience in this YouTube video.
In other ex-gay news, turns out a big study that has been used for some time by folks who promote and provide conversion therapy, including NARTH, is well, not all that sound. Surprised? Via Towelroad:
Many of you heard that the jury to try Angie Zapata’s murdered ended yesterday with a guilty verdict. Autumn Sandeen, a transgender woman who blogs for Pam’s House Blend, attended the trial, wrote about it, and has been interviewed on Trans-Ponder about the experience (not for the faint of heart).
Oft-cited by right-wing religious groups and the Catholic church, the 1979 Homosexuality in Perspective book by sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson, has nothing to back it up, we learn, 30 years later…
Tomorrow I will spend much of the day meeting up with people, prepping for Saturday’s performances, and meeting my friend Mark for dinner. And now I go to bed exhausted but content.
