Conversion Therapy Proponent Caught Trolling for Gay Men on Manhunt

Another day, another hypocrite

A therapist at Horizon Psychological Services who claimed he could change clients’ sexual orientation sough gay sex partners on Manhunt and kept an account on Bear Nation, according to the non-profit Truth Wins Out.

“Norman Goldwasser’s double life of unconscionable lies highlights the rank hypocrisy and predatory nature of the fraudulent ‘ex-gay’ industry,” said Truth Wins Out Executive Director Wayne Besen. “We urge every state to ban the scourge of conversion therapy that attacks the mental health of LGBT youth and puts them in harms way.”

Goldwasser, an Orthodox Jewish provider of conversion therapy services, advertises on his website that he and a team of professionals at his Miami Beach practice will help clients with the healing of trauma. He has also sent clients to the so-called "Manhood" program that sends gay or questioning men off into the woods to engage in "manly" activities with the intent of ensuring they emerge with a heterosexual identity, according to Truth Wins Out.

While posting about Goldwasser's hypocrisy, Truth Wins Out took the opportunity to demand states still allowing the practice on minors to pass statutes barring such treatments, while noting even those states that already prohibit the therapy include loopholes for religious providers.
