'Ex-Gay' Documentary Scheduled During 'Coming Out' Day

by Jim Brown
September 8, 2004

(AgapePress) - A new film debunks the notion that homosexuality is a fixed sexual orientation by documenting the life-changing experiences of five individuals who left the homosexual lifestyle.

I Do Exist! is a video documentary that chronicles the experiences of five former homosexuals, individuals who at one time identified as "gay" or "lesbian," but have since undergone a transformation and exited the sinful lifestyle. Produced by Dr. Warren Throckmorton of Grove City College, the video includes commentary by Dr. Robert Spitzer of Columbia University and Dr. Mark Yarhouse of Regent University. (See Earlier Story)

Throckmorton says his film conveys a message that is often censored by the media and homosexual activist groups: "You can live consistently with a traditional view of sexuality, it's not harmful to do so, and varying degrees of change is possible for people who believe that that's how they should live," Throckmorton says. "This film gives that option."

Churches, colleges, and schools across the U.S. will be showing the film October 9-11 in an effort to counter "National Coming Out Day," an event celebrated by homosexual groups. Throckmorton says the video counters the claims of activists who observe that event.

"The methods that they are promoting on that day [and during] that week are that the only healthy response to same-sex attraction is to 'come out' as homosexual and embrace a homosexual identity," the researcher explains. "The film I Do Exist! gives the narratives of these individuals who've chosen a different path, one that is consistent with traditional Church teaching concerning sexuality."

Throckmorton says it will be difficult to get the film shown in high school health classes and public universities, where homosexuality is viewed as normal, legitimate behavior.
