Ex-gay group files sexual orientation discrimination complaint with Department of Justice

ROCKVILLE, MD, December 12, 2013 ( - Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX) has filed a sexual orientation discrimination complaint with the Department of Justice and the Department of Education against the Montgomery County, Maryland, Board of Education and its School Superintendent, Joshua Starr.

PFOX requests the federal agencies initiate an investigation into the discriminatory practices of Superintendent Starr and the Montgomery County school board and to oversee a remedial program to ensure diversity and non-discrimination against ex-gays.
