This is awesome! After over 150,000 people signed the petition at Change.org and intense media coverage worldwide, Apple has pulled the iPhone application launched by Exodus International that claimed gay people could be “cured.”
This is an epic win for the gay community especially with the dangerous myth circulating that young gay people can be “turned straight.” It’s these falsehoods that are perpetuating depression and suicides among children and young adults.
Truth Wins Out, the organization that started the petition on Change.org, is thrilled.
Apple did the right thing because an incredible 151,125 Change.org members stood together to demand it.
