Wayne Besen kicked off a month of LGBT activities for “GAYpril” on Thursday at Tufts University in Boston. He discussed the ex-gay industry and the religious right with more than 50 students in the Crane Room. “I thank the LGBT Center and Tom Bourdon for hosting this amazing event,” said Besen. “The students were terrific and asked some great questions. I hope the presentation had an impact and was both educational and entertaining.” If you are interested in booking Wayne Besen or another TWO speaker, please contact Lisa Darden for details, firstname.lastname@example.org. Truth Wins Out’s next stop is Belfast, Ireland on April 21 to help counter Exodus International, which is sending its President, Alan Chambers to Belfast to teach people to “pray away the gay.”
