A note from Joseph: Any fan of my podcast or comedy knows that I come from a very religious background. Part of that was experiences with people teaching and conducting reparative therapy a.k.a "pray the gay away" type ministry.
Michael Bussee: The largest "ex-gay" ministry in the states at one time was called Exodus International and was founded by Michael Bussee as a way to minister to Christians struggling with same sex attraction. After many years of internal struggle, he came out to his family, married the love of his life Gary, and quit the ministry. Now he runs support groups for the LGBT community effectively repairing the damage experienced by people in reparative therapy.
