DAVIS, CA —Sacramento liberal writer Ted Cox(cq) will be presenting at UC Davis on Friday, February 26th. He will be speaking on his experiences from his time as a heterosexual atheist going undercover as a homosexual Christian in gay-to-straight therapy programs. His interactive presentation, titled “What I Learned at Straight Camp,” will include music, videos and a live demonstration.
Beginning in 2007, Cox attended weekly support meetings, conferences and a 48-hour long camp in Arizona that all sought to help homosexual Christians become heterosexual. He is currently writing a book on the knowledge he gained during his undercover observations.
Cox is a freelance writer and a regular contributor to the Sacramento News & Review and has a witty, humorous, candid and occasionally self deprecating writing style. He has covered stories on a wide variety of subjects from issues concerning secularism, atheism, education and the environment to issues concerning beer, local entertainment and even furries. He also writes about “midgets” with what can only be described as an overflowing enthusiasm.
Doors to the event open at 5:30pm and the speech is scheduled to begin at 6pm. The audience is encouraged to come a bit early since room capacity is strictly enforced and doors close when the speech begins.
This speech is being hosted by the Agnostic & Atheist Student Association (AgASA). AgASA currently meets Tuesdays at 6pm in Wellman 26. All are welcome.
