This anti-LGBT billboard is standing tall in Elk River, Minnesota. It reads, “Do gay feelings mean you’re ‘born gay’? People around the world say no! Real therapy…really works.” Under a huge magnifying glass are the words “Focused therapy…REPARATIVE THERAPY…real transformation.” Not surprisingly, it was put up by anti-LGBT groups like Minnesota’s Pro Family Forum.
But the billboard is not staying up without a fight. A small group of high school students protested on the steps of the Minnesota State Capitol this weekend, demanding it be taken down. They weren’t able to speak with anyone, but they’re hoping to try again. Always fight the normalization of homophobia and abuse masquerading as “love.” Always. (via KARE 11)
