May 19, 2005: Diversity, it seems, has its limits.

The leading pro-"gay" group was OK'd to distribute a 'how-to' guide for improving the school environment for LGBT students, and the homosexual-affirming video for schoolchildren, "It's Elementary," was scheduled to be exhibited at the conference.
"As we indicated on the application, our purpose at the National PTA exhibit is to distribute educational publications promoting inclusive school environments for ex-gay students and educators," said Regina Griggs, PFOX's executive director. "We fit right in because one of the themes of this year's National PTA convention is diversity. Ex-gays are people, too."
