Ex-Gay Protest and Teach-In: "Love Needs No Cure"
Pride Alliance, Safe Zones, and Keshet, as part of a huge, city-wide effort, plan to hold a peaceful demonstration outside of the ex-gay Love Won Out (www.lovewonout.com) conference this Saturday. Our purpose is to offer a message of truth, love, and acceptance for LGBT families and those struggling with their sexual orientation. We will have placards, posters, ribbons, armbands, and resource info available on site. Transportation to the church site will be provided on February 25th at the South 40 clocktower at two separate times: 6:15 AM and 3:45PM. The early shift is for the arrival of the conference attendees and will be car-pool only (so if you have a car and want to drive, please respond to this e-mail). The later shift will cover the end of the conference as attendees leave, and we will provide buses. The event is officially over at 5:30PM, so expect to be back no later than 6:30PM. Prior to the departure of the second shift we will be holding a Teach-in in Ursa's Fireside at 3:00PM. The Teach-in will feature guest speakers and a panel discussion about the harmful effects of the ex-gay movement. I Sincerely hope that you will join us (and the hundreds of St. Louis citizens that have been planning this event) for the event on Saturday. If you have any questions, please feel free e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by Women's Building 300 during office hours.
