From Ex-Gay to EXTRA Gay

Ex-gay testimonies are a thing. No question about that. I know this because I, like many of my friends, used to identify as ex-gay, or people who "struggled with same-sex attraction." Since the late 90's and mid-2000's, when ex-gay or reparative therapy was in its hay day, it's been proven numerous times by numerous health organizations that attempting to suppress or change your sexual orientation or gender identity is not only dangerous but downright deadly. So why are there still people claiming to be ex-gay? Why do we still hear stories of people who were "healed" by God while the rest of us didn't get the same blessing?
