After an absence of six years, I have returned to my native land. Your European correspondent is now officially Ex-Gay Watch’s man in Canada. When I’m not out hunting polar bears and eating poutine, I’ll be reporting on ex-gay news north of the border. Back in 2006, I offered some modest observations about the differences [...]
I founded the Ex-Gay Watch web site in 2002 to promote new voices in the social dialogue regarding so-called ex-gays.

This is due to a server move/upgrade and shouldn’t cause much trouble, but we wanted you to know. If you experience any unusual site-related problems [...]
You may have noticed that our Atom/RSS syndication feeds have been interrupted recently. We’ve had problems before which seem to trace to Feedburner, so we have stopped using Feedburner. Because Feedburner no longer is pointed to Ex-Gay Watch, you may need to reset your subscription to Ex-Gay Watch in your news reader. You can use [...]
We are trying a new look (yes again!) and there are some minor features missing (author listings on posts for one). This will be corrected in the next few days if we decide to stick with this one. In the mean time, register your likes/dislikes here. Thanks! Update: We’ve gone back to our original look. [...]
Former ex-homosexual Peterson Toscano says the birth of the “ex-gay survivors’ movement” raises some questions. Why did I pursue change? What was I looking for? What did I do to myself and let others do to me? What good came of the experiences I had? What harm came of it? How can I recover from [...]
