Raj left this as a comment and I thought I’d move it up here. Charles Socarides, a psychiatrist and anti-gay crusader who helped found the “ex-gay” movement, has died at age 83. The NY Times obit is here. As seems staggeringly common among the harshest anti-gay activists – Randall Terry, Anita Bryant, Alan Keyes and many, many more – Socarides’ own son was gay. Beyond that, I know little about him.
