WASHINGTON, April 11, 2011 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) is urging parents, students and educators to distribute ex-gay literature at high schools and colleges across the country this Friday.
"We invite schools to distribute our ex-gay brochures year round," said Regina Griggs, PFOX's executive director, "but this Friday is especially important because it is considered a 'day of silence' by homosexual school clubs. This means that members of gay student clubs and their allies will purposely remain silent all day in school to protest intolerance against homosexuals and cross-dressers."
"Because homosexual activists try to censor the ex-gay point of view, PFOX asks students to distribute ex-gay literature to their friends in support of equality for the ex-gay community," said Griggs. "The day of silence enables students to distribute ex-gay literature without harassment since opponents are obligated to remain silent that day."
Many of PFOX's brochures are geared towards youth and explain sexual orientation, tolerance for the ex-gay community, gender identity disorder, anti-bullying policies for both gays and ex-gays, and resources for unwanted same-sex attractions.
These informative brochures and flyers can be downloaded at pfox.org/bookstore.html
and printed at your local printing shop for distribution at schools everywhere.
Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) leads the nation in providing education and public awareness in support of families and the ex-gay community. They can be reached at pfox.org/about_us.html
