Alaskan Families and Allies: "Our Kids Don't Need Changing"

In other news related to the community response to the Anchorage, Alaska so-called "Love Won Out Conference," be sure to check out a wealth of coverage offered over at the blog Bent Alaska.

In the most recent post, there are plenty of pictures and on-the-scene coverage of the event that PFLAG Anchorage participated in. Says chair of PFLAG Anchorage, Jane Schlittler, "Our gay kids are not sick, they're not evil, and they don't need changing... We're here so that truth wins out."

For additional perspective, be sure to read Bent Alaska's posting by Jason, an Alaskan survivor of the so-called "Ex-Gay" movement. It's a very eye-opening story and one that I think illustrates the ordeal that many of the people going through pseudo-therapeutic programs like "Love Won Out" endure.
