The Michigan State University Alliance of LGBTIQQA Students is bringing activist Patrick McAlvey to the school to speak at 7 p.m. April 12.
McAlvey gained national attention last year with his story of falling victim to “ex-gay therapy,” administered by Lansing-based Corduroy Stone. In addition to being featured in LGBT papers and blogs around the country, the YouTube video in which he shares the details of his horrific experience with trying to turn himself straight has garnered over 17,000 views.
Since releasing his story publicly last August through the LGBT organization Truth Wins Out, Corduroy Stone’s Board of Directors has dissolved, and ex-gay organization Exodus International has removed their affiliation with the group.
McAlvey’s speaking engagement at MSU, a free event held in Room C106 of Holmes Hall, will be the kick-off event to the college’s Pride Week.
