Dr. Robert Spitzer, who recently made headlines after making an unprecedented apology to the LGBT community and victims of so-called "reparative therapy" for his infamous 2001 study that claimed some "highly motivated" homosexuals could change from gay to straight, has spoken on camera for the first time since going public about his change of heart.
Last week, Wayne Besen, my colleague at Truth Wins Out, traveled with filmmaker Lisa Darden to Spitzer's home in Princeton, NJ for an exclusive interview. In it, Spitzer reiterates both his retraction and his apology, but more significantly, he rebuked anti-gay organizations like NARTH, Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays (PFOX), and others who continued to trumpet his retracted study. He also called on those groups to stop distorting his research and said they were motivated by hatred of gays and lesbians.
Check out the video after the jump. What do you think: will Dr. Spitzer's strong rebuke be the final nail in the coffin of the so-called "ex-gay" industry?
