#Fact
1Although White and his husband, Gary Nixon, were not married until 2008 (during the few months in 2008 in which same-sex marriage was legal in California), they had been romantic partners since the early 1980s.
2For many years, Rev. White was a ghostwriter for famous religious right figures such as Pat Robertson and Jerry Falwell. During that time, White tried to "cure" his own homosexuality through various methods including prayer, fasting, aversive therapies, exorcism, and electric shock before finally admitting his homosexuality to himself and his family. Eventually, White and his romantic partner Gary Nixon founded Soulforce, an organization that strives for "freedom for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender[ed] people from religious and political oppression through the practice of relentless nonviolent resistance.".
