Legendary Dinnerware Retailer A Proud TWO Sponsor
NEW YORK — Truth Wins Out thanked Replacements, Ltd. today for awarding $5,000 to the organization. The funds will help TWO refute anti-gay misinformation campaigns and challenge programs that claim to “pray away the gay.”
“Truth Wins Out is extremely grateful for the generous support it has received from Replacements and its founder Bob Page,” said TWO Executive Director Wayne Besen. “This allows us to increase our capacity to educate Americans and set the record straight when anti-gay organizations distort research. It also assists us in helping people understand the danger of so-called ex-gay therapy programs that endanger the mental health of GLBT youth.”
Founded by Bob Page in 1981, Replacements, Ltd. (located in Greensboro, NC) has the world’s largest selection of old and new dinnerware, including china, stoneware, crystal, glassware, silver, stainless, and collectibles. Its 415,000 square foot facilities (the size of seven football fields!) house an inventory of 13 million pieces in more than 300,000 patterns, some over 100 years old.
“We proudly support Truth Wins Out; I hope others will contribute to this important organization,” said Bob Page, founder of Replacements, Ltd. “So many GLBT people‚Äîand their families‚Äîhave been damaged by groups distorting the truth about sexual orientation or gender identity. Our communities and our workplaces are impacted too, and that has a very real cost. I want us to be a part of the solution to the problem.”‚Ä® ‚Ä®Page is known as a generous philanthropist who has helped organizations that promote GLBT equality — particularly in North Carolina.
Truth Wins Out is a non-profit organization that defends gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people against anti-gay misinformation campaigns. TWO also counters the “ex-gay” industry and educates America about the lives of GLBT people.
