Let alone the thousands who have left the gay lifestyle, three very well known leaders in the gay community have left the lifestyle:

Michael Glatze ‘Comes Out’ of Homosexuality: former ‘Young Gay America’ Magazine Co-founder
Venus Magazine
The Ex-Gay Story in the Pop Music World

The number of ex-gays continues to grow. For more information, checkout NARTH.

I also know a “recovered” gay ...

I've known one male, two female. I still have a few gay acquaintances, but no more gay friends - they all died of AIDS.

You bet. I know an ex-gay who received therapy and is now happily married to a woman. It can work.

If you're talking about a man, you have a point.

There is NO proof or credible evidence homosexuality is genetic. But, there are thousands of former homosexuals and research by Masters and Johnson and others showing homosexuals can change.

The studies say 40% of patients will show positive results if you do ANYTHING for a treatment.

IOW if you perscribe sitting and just watching TV sport events, 40% will show improvement.

they never discuss the prison population where otherwise straight males and females behave abnormally but return to normal physical behavior outside of prison.
