(This Thursday!) Don Harryman -- A Personal Experience of Gay Aversion Therapy

UVU, SC building, Rooms 206B&C. 1-2:30pm.

(Alternate time/place: this Thursday at 7pm at the SLC Public Library.)

Come listen to Don Harryman's experience of gay aversion therapy at BYU and his eventual acceptance of his sexuality.

Don Harryman went through Aversion Therapy at BYU in 1972, in an attempt to change his sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual. Don considered then that "the burns on my arms and the emotional trauma I experienced seemed to me the price that I had to pay for change". After Don left BYU, he eventually accepted his homosexuality. Through the help of friends, Don eventually realized that "that accepting my homosexuality did not preclude me from having a life filled with useful work and rich, loving friendships."

    I am very interested in this topic. It is one of the pinpointing reasons for my aversion to religion. Does anyone have any thoughts on how God feels about gays? (If there is a God.)

      If God created us all and created gay people just the same, He loves them just as well.

      God, Source or the creative energy is not about barriers or differences is more about expansion of many possibilities.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
