Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays
Welcome to PFOX
PFOX is not a therapeutic or counseling organization. PFOX supports families, advocates for the ex-gay community, and educates the public on sexual orientation. Each year thousands of men, women and teens with unwanted same-sex attractions make the personal decision to leave homosexuality. However, there are those who refuse to respect that decision. Consequently, formerly gay persons are reviled simply because they dare to exist! Without PFOX, ex-gays would have no voice in a hostile environment.
PFOX families unconditionally love their children. PFOX parents recognize our children for the wonderful young men and women they are. PFOX families do not label children based on who they are attracted to—feelings can and do change. PFOX families allow for differences of opinion; we do not place requirements on our children nor do they place them on us. That’s what unconditional love means—loving each other even when we do not agree. Learn more about PFOX.
As we make continuing advances in the science of human sexuality it has become clear that sexual orientation and gender identity are largely fluid, subjectively determined classifications. As to what may drive a person’s sexual orientation and/or sexual appetites, the left-leaning American Psychological Association (APA) has concluded: “Many [scientists] think that nature and nurture both play complex roles.”
The scientifically reinforced fluidity of sexual orientation and gender identity may help to explain why, as even the APA has acknowledged, thousands (if not millions) of people have “altered their sexual orientation” with “varying degrees of satisfaction and varying perceptions of success.” It is no longer open for serious debate. Despite tremendous political pressure to find otherwise, the APA acknowledges that for people with unwanted same-sex attractions, “change is possible!” It’s not always easy, but change is undeniably and conclusively possible.
