To help counter the religious right’s claims of “thousands healed,” the website “Beyond Ex-Gay” has set up a survey for former ex-gay people to take.

We have begun to implement strategies to let others know the realities and damaging effects of ex-gay and religious abuse. We need your help to do this.

We’ve all heard the declarations that “thousands and thousands of people have been healed of their homosexuality.” Where do those numbers come from? At Beyond Ex-Gay (bXg) we know firsthand that the thousands who have attended ex-gay groups never “changed.” Worse yet, our ex-gay experiences caused us tremendous harm. So to counter the rhetoric, we have created a new survey specifically for ex-gay survivors.

It’s short, and you can stay as anonymous as you’d like. If you can’t find answers that fit your experience, we provide plenty of empty boxes for you to express yourself as accurately as possible. Your willingness to be counted will ultimately stand in stark contrast to the misinformation that ex-gay promoters use to convince people that “change is possible” and harmless to pursue.

They’re also archiving the stories of ex-gay survivors, so if you’ve written your experience down, they want to read it. In the meantime, click here to take the survey.
