‘Twins’ on ex-gay group’s billboard are actually the same man… and he’s gay
An ex-gay group’s billboard, which claims to feature identical twins with different sexualities, is actually two photos of the same gay man.
Christian anti-gay group Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays and Gays launched a billboard in Richmond, Virginia featuring pictures of two identical men, claiming: “Identical twins. One gay, one not. We believe twins research studies show NOBODY IS BORN GAY”.
However, it turns out that far from being twins, the billboard is actually two pictures of the same man – and he’s gay, and does not even have a twin brother.
Stock image model Kyle Roux – who sat for the photos several years ago – reached out to NBC after seeing the story online.
He said: “I was obviously quite shocked, so that why I decided to send you guys an email saying hey, I’m that guy in that billboard.
“It just seems like there no place in today’s world for an organization that is promoting this as being some kind of deviant or distasteful lifestyle, because I’ve lived my life openly gay and happy for my entire life.”
However, PFOX board member Chris Doyle sees no issue with the ad.
He said: “The issue isn’t the photo on the billboard, but the actual science.
“PFOX supports the rights of everyone who wants to pursue that for themselves.”
