“Gay Cure” App Ousted from App Store

Written on March 24, 2011 by R. Depp

Apple has removed a “gay cure” app from the App store after over 146,000 people signed a petition against the said app.

According to app’s creator, Exodus International, its main objective was to “provide support for individuals who want to recover from homosexuality.”

A report from Mashable.com says that “the activist organization Truth Wins Out and Change.org, the platform used to launch the petition, praised Apple for removing the app from the App Store.”

“Apple made a wise and responsible decision to dump an offensive app that demonized gay and lesbian people,” said Wayne Besen, executive director of Truth Wins Out.

Last year, Apple also removed an anti-homosexual app after 7,000 people inked a Change.org petition, demanding for its removal.
