  1. Ahab, a gay ex-Mormon acquaintance of mine testified before the CO House on the bill banning gay conversion therapy. The only place I can find his testimony so far is in a note on his Facebook page that he's only sharing with FB friends. Of course, now it's part of public record. If you're interested email me and I'll copy and paste it back to you. It's a chilling account from a man who went through the conversion therapy. Of course, I imagine you've already read others like it.

    Thanks, as always, for the tidbits!

    1. Donna -- Thank you. It was earnest and saddening to read about how an "ex-gay" program forced him to stifle his true self. I'll bring attention to House Bill 1210 in one of my posts.
