We know there are Slog readers all over the country—all over the world—and we would like to encourage any Slog readers in the Philly area to join this protest tomorrow.
The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) is having its annual convention in Philadelphia (Nov. 5-7). The notorious "ex-gay" group is hoping that Americans have amnesia and don't remember that its most "prominent" board member, George Rekers, was forced to resign in May. Rekers stepped down after he was caught vacationing with a male escort he met on RentBoy.com. When asked why he had hired the young man, Rekers said it was to, "lift his luggage."
As the infamous quacks at NARTH gather for their annual convention, let's Remind America that NARTH is a pseudo-scientific organization that is more about Rent Boys than research.
WHAT: Protest of NARTH's annual convention (Please join us)
WHERE: Renaissance Philadelphia Airport Hotel, 500 Stevens Drive Philadelphia, Pa.
WHEN: Saturday, Nov. 6, 2010 Noon-1:30 PM.
