Truth Wins Out


Truth Wins Out

Truth Wins Out (abbreviated TWO) is an organization formed by Wayne Besen to counteract what it refers to as the "ex-gay" myth. TWO states that religious groups claiming that they have "cured" individuals of homosexuality are a hoax, and in fact, dangerous to society.

History

Truth Wins Out was formed on June 7, 2006 by Besen as a response to the growing number of ministries and assemblies that promote the ideology that homosexuality is a condition that can be cured.cite web| url=http://www.waynebesen.com/2006/06/besen-to-launch-organization-to.html|title="Besen to Launch Organization to Counter Ex-Gay Myth|publisher=Wayne Besen official website|date=2006-06-02|accessdate=2007-03-04] The goal of TWO is to dispel alleged "facts" and misinformation put up by ex-gay activists and discourage people from believing ex-gay propaganda.
