Andrew is a 16 year old boy who came out to his mother in Colorado. She was an avid reader of Focus on the Family’ books and used them to try to get Andrew to change his sexual orientation. Focus on the Family sent books, videos and other ex-gay propaganda that told Andrew that there was something wrong with him. It convinced his mother that he could change from gay to straight. When he could not change, things got so tense in the house that he moved out to live with his father in Arizona.
Andrew is a real life example how Focus on the Family and James Dobson divide families. On this video, he urges the Radio Hall of Fame not to honor a man who has caused so much pain for his family.
