Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH)

Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH) is an organization which describes its mission as “exposing the homosexual activist agenda.” AFTAH rejects the idea of inborn sexual orientation and believes that people can “leave the homosexual lifestyle.” It was formed in 1996 by anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera. In 2010, AFTAH was designated as an anti-gay hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center for spreading “hateful propaganda,” and claiming that homosexuality can be “cured.”
