The 2011 Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) was boycotted by many conservative organizations because for the second year in a row CPAC included a gay activist group, GOProud , as a major participant in the conference.

Many of the organizations boycotting the conference placed a full page ad in the Washington Times denouncing CPAC’s partnership with a gay rights organization.

Despite the boycott, Parents and Friends of Ex-gays and Gays (PFOX) had their exhibit at the CPAC conference. Many of the GOProud activists visited the PFOX exhibit and “heard about change from the mouths of ex-gays, who related their personal stories.” PFOX stated that they “encountered more homosexual-identified attendees than we ever have at previous CPAC conferences. Some were nice, some were nasty.” A PFOX article on the 2011 CPAC Conference can be found at
