In another case for the "Well OBVIOUSLY" files, former vice-president of ex-gay group Exodus International Randy Thomas has come out of the closet. In a post on his personal blog, Thomas makes it explicit:
I have read many stories of people who have “come out again” or accepted they are gay after some time in the ex-gay world. Many of their stories are compelling and well-written. But, sometimes I wish they would get to the point right off the bat. Just say it and then tell the story. So that is what I am going to do: I am gay.
The rest of the post goes into the story of where he's been and how he got to where he is today, with religion occupying a substantial part of his psyche. To his credit, he has made public apologies for the hurt that he and Exodus International have inflicted upon the gay community, and for initially opposing gay marriage.
Whether one accepts or rejects said apologies, another ally is always welcome – especially one that further undermines the "ex-gay" myth – and they at least put Thomas leagues ahead of some "ex-gay" wacakadoos.
