I know that this program produced by TLC is drawing, and will continue to draw, a great deal of fire from the LGBTQ community. Having spent years living as an ex-gay and struggling in my own journey to self-acceptance, it is difficult for me to see these men as anything other than pilgrims on their own journey. My only hope for them is that they would be able to live lives in which they feel whole and fulfilled. The voices that spoke loudest to me on my own journey were those that said that they supported me and accepted me no matter what. I wish these men well as they continue down their own paths.
