Gay Rights Activists Outraged Over Billboard’s Message About Homosexuality and Genetics

A controversial billboard proclaiming that “nobody is born gay” has sparked a great deal of controversy in Richmond, Virginia, where it was recently put on display.

Paid for by Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays — an organization aimed at helping so-called “ex-gays” gain acceptance — the ad features a picture of male twins and reads, “Identical twins. One gay. One not. We believe twins research studies show nobody is born gay.”

While the billboard is offending local gay and lesbian advocates, Regina Griggs, executive director of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays, believes that critics aren’t looking at the facts, specifically when it comes to analyzing how same-sex attraction pertains to twins.

True but it's so much easier to say they were born that way then to face the music and spend many pain staking hours in therapy. With politicians looking for votes under all the cracks and crevices this whole ridiculous thing has gotten out of control.
