Wayne Besen to Speak on ‘Ex-Gay’ Myth In West Palm Beach on Tuesday, Nov. 17
Event to Counter Notorious ‘Pray Away The Gay’ Therapy Conference
What: – Only three months after the American Psychological Association released a landmark report that claimed attempts to change from gay-to-straight do not work, a notorious “ex-gay” therapy group will come to South Florida to peddle its fraudulent cure for homosexuality. In response to the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality’s (NARTH) infamous conference, Compass will host author and activist Wayne Besen who will give a multi-media presentation on the harm of so-called ex-gay therapy.
Who: Wayne Besen is the founder and Executive Director of Truth Wins Out, an organization that researches ex-gay organizations and the Religious Right. Besen is the author of “Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth”. Earlier this week, Besen was named one of Instinct Magazine’s “Leading Men 2009.” Besen has appeared as a guest on news and political talk shows including: Comedy Central’s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, NBC Nightly News, CNN, Fox’s O’Reilly Factor and Hannity and Colmes and MSNBC News.

Note that if we keep on the path where we are re-doing the Casino building in its current location - east of the coastal construction line - we may be forced to retroactively put the building on pilings. This would add to the cost exponentially and give little other benefit other than meeting current regulations and protecting the same tired building from the effects of erosion.

"We're more bothered by Mr. McNamara's bogus claim that he was "co-endorsed by the Democratic Club" and his unwillingness to discuss it."
Can the PB Post ever get over its obssession with "the balance" of the Commission? It's good that they are becoming more and more irrelevant as time passes.
