PFLAG (Parents family and friends of Lesbians and Gays) is proud to present Michael Bussee.He will be speaking at our general meeting on Monday February 28 at 7PM at First United Methodist Church in Mission Valley 2231 Camino del Rio South. Due to the popularity of the speaker plan to arrive early to find parking and follow the PFLAG signs to the event . There wont be small group discussions at the end of his speech as is customary but a question and answer period with Michael.Michael Bussee was one of the original, co-founders of Exodus International (in September of 1976) and he is now one of the organizations’s most vocal critics. He knows personally the harm done by so-called “ex-gay” or “reparative therapy” organizations. Michael will give us insight about the history of the “ex-gay movement”, his reasons for leaving and the development of a growing “Ex-gay Survivor” movement.
He has appeared on the Joan River’s Show and is featured in the award-winning documentary “One Nation Under God” — an expose of the “ex-gay movement”. His story (on the intersection of spirituality and sexuality) will also be featured in an upcoming Lisa Ling documentary on the Oprah Winfrey Network this Spring. He is a father and grandfather of three.
Michael has a BA in Cultural Anthropology and an MS in Counseling.For more information about this event and PFLAG in general you can email
