Be the Difference.

The “Ex-Gay” Industry is preparing for a worldwide campaign to push the Big Lie that people can “pray away the gay.” Do you want to help us stop them? In 2021, “ex-gay” conversion groups are planning to:

  • Hold “ex-gay” bootcamps from Pennsylvania to Poland
  • Distribute In His Image, a conversion therapy propaganda movie
  • Organize “ex-gay” Freedom Marches, to pretend that “ex-gays” exist
  • Work to overturn laws that ban conversion therapy for minors

Founded in 2006, Truth Wins Out is the oldest nonprofit advocacy organization and educational resource dedicated to monitoring and ending “ex-gay” conversion programs, while working to eliminate anti-LGBTQ prejudice and discrimination. Please consider a tax-deductible contribution to Truth Wins Out today so we can have maximum impact in 2021.

If you are unfamiliar with Truth Wins Out, please watch a short segment from the acclaimed 2020 documentary “You’ll be Straight”, or read a feature article about our critically important work in the Philadelphia Gay News. You will see the vital significance of our indispensable work, and understand why we need you to be a hero by offering an end-of-year donation.

Why give to Truth Wins Out? Because we have an ambitious and robust agenda for 2021 that will make a difference and save lives. In the coming year, Truth Wins Out’s plans include:

  • Executive Director Wayne Besen will release a new book on the failure of “ex-gay” programs that will frame the issue and educate the world. This is the long-awaited follow-up to Wayne’s 2003 book, Anything But Straight: Unmasking the Scandals and Lies Behind the Ex-Gay Myth, which was nominated for two Lambda Literary Awards.


  • In 2020, Truth Wins Out released historic, in-depth interviews with former “ex-gay” leaders, who told the world that conversion programs are dangerous and pure garbage. Truth Wins Out needs your help to distribute the interviews, so people can understand the full wreckage wrought by the “ex-gay” industry. We will also continue to tell the stories of “ex-gay” survivors, whose experiences are instrumental in defeating the “ex-gay” Big Lie.


  • As the “ex-gay” industry fails at home, they are taking their programs abroad to more fertile territory, such as Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa and South America. Truth Wins Out is fighting this global expansion, converting our landmark videos into multiple languages, such as Spanish, Chinese, Russian, Korean, and Polish. It is imperative that we defeat these American groups that are disseminating their toxic trash abroad, because the Religious Right’s goal is to surround the US, Canada and Western Europe with homophobic nations, and then use them as leverage to undermine us from within.


  • Truth Wins Out will continue to monitor and report on every aspect of the “ex-gay” industry. We will work to expose their leaders as frauds, fight against lies and defamation and provide world class resources to help people avoid these noxious programs.

There is so much extraordinary work to be done. We CAN change the world and save lives. However, we can only accomplish our goals and be the difference with your help. Please consider a generous end-of-year tax deductible donation to Truth Wins Out today. Together, we can create a better future and fight to rid the world of destructive “ex-gay” conversion programs.
