RNC Pays for Lesbian Erotica While Refusing to Meet with Ex-Gays.

WASHINGTON, April 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Michael Steele, chair of the Republican National Committee, has consistently refused to meet with members of the ex-gay community," said Greg Quinlan of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX). "Now we know why. The RNC would rather use donor funds for its staff to watch lesbian erotica at nightclubs than help support individuals who wish to leave homosexuality."

In last year's interview with Gentleman's Quarterly magazine, Steele compared being homosexual to being black and was quoted as doubting that ex-gays exist. PFOX offered to meet with Steele on numerous occasions to show him that ex-gays do exist and explain the process of individual change. To date, Steele has refused to meet with members of the ex-gay community, including African-American former homosexuals. In the past, ex-gays have met with Ed Gillespie, one of Steele's predecessors.

"It's no wonder the RNC continues to lose factions of its members, such as Tea Party conservatives," said Christopher Doyle, a former homosexual and PFOX board member. "Michael Steele would be better off if he extended ex-gays a place at the table rather than paying his staff to watch lesbians dance on it at strip clubs."
