RICHMOND, Va. Aug. 4, 2014 /Christian Newswire/ -- Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX, www.pfox.org), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with a mission to support families and educate the public on sexual orientation and the ex-gay community, has unveiled its new web site. The site will be an encouraging resource for ex-gays, gays and their families and friends who are searching for hope, truth and answers to their desire to leave the homosexual lifestyle.
Found online at www.pfox.org, PFOX believes everyone has the right to hear all sides of this issue, including receiving accurate information regarding misconceptions about ex-gays and same-sex attraction.
Through the PFOX blog, experts and those with first-hand experience share regularly updated commentary that gives voice to ex-gays and their parents, family members and friends on current events and issues affecting the ex-gay community. Through the blog, PFOX will strengthen the ex-gay community's voice to better educate the public and foster open and honest discussion.
"Ex-gays who have struggled with same-sex attraction are sometimes treated in a hostile manner by the gay community, which may not understand their intentions or reasoning," said Regina Griggs, Executive Director of PFOX. "Those who choose to leave the homosexual lifestyle, through counseling or other means, are often also misunderstood by their family and friends, who want to support them but don't know how. For more than 15 years, PFOX has been that support for both ex-gays and their family and friends, and we will continue to help thousands more in the future, as we have in the past."
The new PFOX site also shares resources for those struggling with same-sex attraction and transgender/gender identity, as well as information geared toward parents and friends, pastors and churches, students and schools, and policy makers and government officials.
PFOX is for every person seeking the support of family, friends, the community and church. PFOX supports an inclusive environment for the ex-gay community and works to eliminate negative perceptions and discrimination against former homosexuals by conducting public education and outreach to further individual self-determination and respect for all Americans, regardless of sexual orientation.
PFOX believes that every person seeking positive life change needs and deserves the love and support of family, friends, the community and the church and offers a place for help, a place for truth, and a place for ex-gays to participate in the conversation about same-sex attraction.
