Love Won Out is a quarterly ex-gay symposium sponsored by Focus on the Family. John Paulk, an ex-gay leader who was on the cover of Newsweek and appeared on Oprah, 60 Minutes and Good Morning America, originally ran the program. Love Won Out suffered a major setback after Paulk was photographed in a Washington, D.C., gay bar by Besen. is a non-profit organization that counters right wing propaganda, exposes the “ex-gay” myth and educates America about gay life.
