The ex-gay movement ain't

If the leaders of the movement can't change why should we expect anyone else to? This movement is dead but it just doesn't know it yet.

"A large section of Besen's book details scandals involving ex-gay leaders who are discovered to be not quite as ex-gay as they seem. In addition to the Paulk scandal, the book tells the story of Gary Cooper and Michael Bussee, the men who helped found Exodus International and then left the ex-gay movement (and their wives) after they fell in love with each other. Besen also discusses Colin Cook, founder of Homosexuals Anonymous, whose career ended in disgrace when it was discovered that he was having sexual encounters with his male clients."
