Billboards claim being gay is a choice; Texas LGBT community protests

Waco, Texas (KCEN) – A pair of billboards are causing controversy in Waco, Texas’ LGBT community.

They read “Ex-Gays prove change is possible.” The billboards are sponsored by PFOX (Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays), a Virginia-based volunteer group. The group has a handful of billboards in Texas

The group believes people are not born gay and believe it is a choice and is something that can be fixed. Reverend Charley Garrison of The Central Texas Metropolitan Community Church said the billboards condemn people who are gay rather than support them.

“I was disappointed that someone would come to our community and put up something that goes against the diversity of the community,” Garrison said.
