In 1973, The American Psychiatric Association (APA) removed 
homosexuality as a mental disorder from the APA's Diagnostic and 
Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-II).

This decision was a significant victory for homosexual activists 
and they have continued to claim that the APA based their 
decision on new scientific discoveries that proved that 
homosexual behavior is normal and should be affirmed in our 

This is false and part of numerous homosexual urban legends that 
have infiltrated every aspect of our culture. The removal of 
homosexuality as a mental disorder has given homosexual 
activists credibility in the culture, and they have demanded 
that their sexual behavior be affirmed in society.

What Really Happened?

Numerous psychiatrists over the past decades have described what 
forces were really at work both inside and outside of the 
American Psychiatric Association---and what led to the removal 
of homosexuality as a mental disorder.

Dr. Ronald Bayer, a pro-homosexual psychiatrist has described 
what actually occured in his book, Homosexuality and American 
Psychiatry: The Politics of Diagnoses. (1981)

In Chapter 4, "Diagnostic Politics: Homosexuality and the 
American Psychiatric Association," Dr. Bayer says that the first 
attack by homosexual activists against the APA began in 1970 
when this organization held its convention in San Francisco. 
Homosexual activists decided to disrupt the conference by 
interrupting speakers and shouting down and ridiculing 
psychiatrists who viewed homosexuality as a mental disorder. In 
1971, homosexual activist Frank Kameny worked with the Gay 
Liberation Front collective to demonstrate against the APA's 
convention. At the 1971 conference, Kamney grabbed the 
microphone and yelled, "Psychiatry is the enemy incarnate. 
Psychiatry has waged a relentless war of extermination against 
us. You may take this as a decleration of war against you."

Homosexuals forged APA credentials and gained access to exhibit 
areas in the conference. They threatened anyone who claimed that 
homosexuals needed to be cured.

Kamney had found an ally inside of the APA named Kent Robinson 
who helped the homosexual activist present his demand that 
homosexualiy be removed from the DSM. At the 1972 convntion, 
homosexual activists were permitted to set up a display booth, 
entitled "Gay, Proud, and Healthy."

Kameny was then permitted to be part of a panel of psychiatrists 
who were to discuss homosexuality. The effort to remove 
homosexuality as a mental disorder from the DSM was the result 
of power politics, threats, and intimidation, not scientific 

Prior to the APA's 1973 convention, several psychiatrists 
attempted to organize opposition to the efforts of homosexuals 
to remove homosexual behavior from the DSM. Organizing this 
effort were Drs. Irving Bieber and Charles Socarides who formed 
the Ad Hoc Committee Against the Deletion of Homosexuality from 
the Dsm-II.

The DSM-II listed homosexuality as an abnormal behavior under 
section "302. Sexual Deviations." It was the first deviation 

After much political pressure, a committee of the APA met behind 
closed doors in 1973 and voted to remove homosexuality as a 
mental disorder from the DSM-II. Opponents were given 15 minutes 
to protest this change, according to Dr. Jeffery Satinover, in 
Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth. Satinover writes that 
after this vote was taken, the decision was to be voted on by 
the entire APA membership. The National Gay Task Force purchased 
the APA's mailing list and sent out a letter to the APA members 
urging them to vote to remove homosexuality as a disorder. No 
APA member was informed that the mailing had been funded by this 
homosexual activist group.

According to Satinover, "How much the 1973 APA decision was 
motivated by politics is only becoming clear even now. While 
attending a conference in England in 1994, I met a man who told 
me an account that he had told no one else. He had been in the 
gay life for for years but had left the lifestyle. He recounted 
how that after the 1973 APA decisiion, he and his lover, along 
with a certain very highly placed officer of the APA Board of 
Trustees and his lover, all sat around the officer's apartment 
celebrating their victory. For among the gay activists placed 
high in the APA who maneuvered to ensure a victory was this man--
suborning from the top what was presented to both the membership 
and the public as a disinterested search for truth."

Dr. Socarides Speaks Out

Dr. Charles Socarides has set the record straight on how 
homosexuals inside and outside of the APA forced this 
organization to remove homosexuality as a mental disorder. This 
was done without any valid scientific evidence to prove that 
homosexuiality is not a disordered behavior.

Dr. Socarides, writing in Sexual Politics and Scientific Logic : 
The Issue of Homosexuality writes: "To declare a condition a 
'non-condition,' a group of practitioners had removed it from 
our list of serious psychosexual disorders. The action was all 
the more remarkable when one considers that it involved an out-
of-hand and peremptory disregard and dismissal not only of 
hundreds of psychiatric and psychoanalytic research papers and 
reports, but also a number of other serious studies by groups of 
psychiatrists, psychologists, and educators over the past 
seventy years..."

Socarides continued: "For the next 18 years, the APA decision 
served as a Trojan horse, opening the gates to widespread 
psychological and social change in sexual customs and mores. The 
decision was to be used on numerous occasions for numerous 
purposes with the goal of normalizing homosexuality and 
elevating it to an esteemed status."

"To some American psychiatrists, this action remains a chilling 
reminder that if scientific principles are not fought for, they 
can be lost--a disillusioning warning that unless we make no 
exceptions to science, we are subject to the snares of political 
factionalism and the propogation of untruths to an unsuspecting 
and uninformed public, to the rest of the medical profession, 
and to the behavioral sciences." Dr. Socarides' report is 
available from the National Association for Research and Therapy 
of Homosexuality: www.narth.com.

The Importance of The DSM.

The DSM(Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders) 
is the most widely used disgnostic reference book utilized by 
mental health professionals in the United States.

It's a manual by which all diagnostic codes are derived for 
diagnosis and treatment - every single physician (an estimated 
850,000*) in the United States refers to this book in order to 
code for a diagnoses. In plain English, what does this mean? It 
means that for over 30 years physicians have been prevented from 
properly diagnosing homosexuality as an aberrant behavior and 
thus, cannot, recomend a treatment for these individuals.

Prior to that time, homosexuality had been treated as a mental 
disorder under section "302. Sexual Deviations" in the DSM-II. 
Section 302 said, in part: "This category is for individuals 
whose sexual interests are directed primarily towards objects 
other than people of the opposite sex, toward sexual 
acts...performed under bizarre circumstances...Even though many 
find their practices distasteful, they remain unable to 
substitue normal sexual behavior for them." Homosexuality was 
listed as the first sexual deviation under 302. Once that 
diagnostic code for homosexuality was removed, physicians, 
including psychiatrists, have been prevented from diagnosing 
homosexuality as a mental disorder for more than three decades.
