Ted Cox, June 7 in San Francisco

"A Reason for Reason" skeptical speaker series, in association with CFI, salutes Pride Month in an appropriately skeptical way...

Please join us and tell fellow skeptics!

Starting in 2007, straight writer Ted Cox went undercover in Christian gay-to-straight therapy programs. He attended weekly support group meetings, conferences, and a 48-hour intensive retreat. His talk, which covers those experiences and examines the motives and background of the ex-gay movement, includes videos, music, audience singing, and a live demonstration of "healing touch" therapy. Ted's work on this subject has garnered attention of The Huffington Post, Fox News Radio, NPR, dozens of national and international media outlets as well as numerous universities.
