David Matheson, a once prominent Mormon conversion therapist from Utah, took to Facebook on Tuesday to come out to his friends and followers.
“A year ago I realized I had to make substantial changes in my life,” Matheson, who used to run an organization called the Center for Gender Affirming Processes, wrote. “I realized I couldn’t stay in my marriage any longer. And I realized that it was time for me to affirm myself as gay.”
“I enjoyed a happy and fulfilling marriage with my wife for many years. Overall, it was a beautiful relationship and being “straight” became a core part of my identity,” he continued. “But I also experienced attractions to men. Much of the time these were in the background. But sometimes they were very intense and led to pain and struggle in my marriage.”
It should be noted that Matheson isn’t choosing to be gay, he’s choosing to be open about it.
There certainly is a bit of irony here, maybe quite a bit, but more, it shows the ridiculousness of conversion therapy.
