As someone who has been through sexual orientation change efforts, grounded in psychological research and fact, I can attest that I am a much happier person. After being told for years by the popular media that I was born this way, I was at the point of suicide. The type of therapy being attacked in this legislation saved my life. I am a stronger more confident person I am much more secure in myself as a man. I finally feel that I am in touch with my core self that I was suppressing for years. I am happily married to a woman and we have 2 amazing children. My attraction to women has increased 100 % and I no longer find myself sexually attracted to men. If this type of legislation was passed several years ago I would be dead.
