TFL vs CIT Costs (£8,870.87) paid in full!

We thank God for all those supporters who have helped in raising a considerable sum required, we believe unfairly, by Transport for London, in respect of the London Bus Case in which we opposed the promotion of a categorical understanding of homosexuality in the public space. We believe individuals should have the right and freedom to leave unwanted sexual practices and be supported by professionals to do so. This case demonstrates the silencing imposed on any dissenting position and with no regard to the emerging evidence that sexuality is fluid and changeable for many.

  • A meeting of the Parliamentary Gay Club was held on Tuesday 3rd November in Westminster Hall to “consider gay conversion therapy and the NHS”.

    Our Children as Gay Champions (pt1)

About Core Issues Trust

Core Issues is a non-profit Christian ministry supporting men and women with homosexual issues who voluntarily seek change in sexual preference and expression.

It respects the rights of individuals who identify as 'gay' who do not seek change, and supports dignity for LGBT persons. It does not support gay "marriage" - usually considered an "equality" issue, premised on the belief that being gay is "biological" and is therefore unchangeable. Core Issues Trust offers one-to-one support for individuals voluntarily seeking to leave homosexual behaviours and feelings. Please read our "Statement on Prejudice". The Royal College of Psychiatrists (2014) has recently affirmed that human sexuality is fluid for some, and therefore changeable in some cases. Core Issues Trust promotes the idea that individuals are not "victims" of their sexual desires.
