Excerpt from the PFOX article “New Jersey Sen. Barbara Buono Called on to Stop her Hate Against Sexual Minorities:” “Trenton, N.J. … In a statement made during a New Jersey Senate committee hearing on March 18, 2013, Sen. Buono said she was glad to have sponsored non-discrimination legislation that did not include ‘formerly gay individuals’ because she had ‘never heard of that phrase uttered before.’”

“‘Sen. Bouno knows I am openly ex-gay,’ said Greg Quinlan, a former homosexual and president of the Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) board of directors. ‘She disagrees with my sexual orientation and so pretends people like me are not members of society. Buono accepts people who change their gender identity, or who engage in same-sex behavior, but is intolerant of those who change their sexual orientation from gay to straight. This discrimination has no place in our state of New Jersey,’ said Quinlan. “‘We call on Sen. Buono to apologize to the ex-gay community.’”
