Sandy Rios predicted on her American Family Association radio show yesterday that "thousands" of "ex-gay" people would show up for an "Ex-Gay Pride" rally and press conference in Washington D.C. today.

"Tomorrow in the nation's capitol, thousands of ex-gays are descending to be heard," said Rios (audio below), notes RightWingWatch.org.

She then interviewed Ex-Gay Pride Month organizer Chris Doyle, who added: "We are descending on Capitol Hill tomorrow as you said and we are going to let our voices be heard. As you know, Washington D.C. is the only jurisdiction in the United States where ex-gays are actually a protected class from discrimination, however, we would like that to be across the United States."

"And we are demanding that not only Congress hear our voices, but at 2 p.m. we are going to stand in front of the Supreme Court and hold a rally and press conference, and demand that Justice Kennedy understand that gays and lesbians are not the only sexual-orientation class that faces animus in this country," said Doyle.
