(PFOX) Statement excerpt: “Every week is a ‘banned books week’ for the ex-gay community. Books about leaving homosexuality are censored in most high school and community libraries, although gay affirming books are readily available. Arlington County, Virginia public schools accepted gay books for students from a local gay activist group, but Charlie Makela, the supervisor for Arlington Public School’s Office of Library Services, returned ex-gay books that PFOX had donated because she did not ‘believe the books are appropriate for our high school collection.’ Yet according to the ALA, the freedom to access information and express ideas, even if unorthodox and unpopular, is the reason for its Banned Books Week.” The link to the PFOX statement.
