Finding Love in an Unlikely Place

For your pre-Valentine's Day pleasure, I offer this story from the Dallas Voice about Larry and KC Jansson, two young men who met and fell in love at an ex-gay camp.

Their story has everything: drama, romance, conflict, a happy ending. And comedy. There's plenty of funny business, ranging from irony (two gay guys fall in love while trying to give up gayness), to physical comedy (four ex-gay campers at the mall see an Abercrombie & Fitch poster, stop dead and fall on top of each other).

Then there's the tragi-comedy, the laughable rules and methods of these reparative therapy programs. They would be a scream—if they weren't so harmful.
