Excerpts from the PFOX article “PFOX Files Ex-Gay Brief in Supreme Court Cases:” “Washington D.C. — Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) has filed an amicus curiae brief in the genderless marriage and Defense of Marriage (DOMA) Supreme Court cases being heard this week. As the only ex-gay organization to file a brief in these historical Supreme Court cases, PFOX appears as amicus to address the purported immutability of homosexuality. Dean Broyles, chief counsel of the National Center for Law and Policy, authored the brief on behalf of PFOX.”

“In its Supreme Court filings, PFOX (like the APA and many gay organizations) affirms that sexual orientation is fluid, and can and does change over time. PFOX explains that a growing number of governmental authorities and other organizations recognize the existence of ex-gays.”

“As a non-profit organization that advocates for the ex-gay community, PFOX explains to the Supreme Court that far from being an immutable characteristic determined at birth like race or gender, sexual orientation is a complex and amorphous phenomenon that defies consistent and uniform definition. “Homosexuality has not been shown to be innate or genetic – individuals can change their sexual orientation,” said Regina Griggs, executive director of PFOX.”
