Courage UK - History

History

Courage UK was founded in February 1988 by Jeremy Marks. The group was originally affiliated with the ex-gay movement and was once a member of Exodus International, but as of 2002, the organization abandoned those views and its affiliation with the ex-gay movement. At the time of its founding, the group's efforts were considered progressive, because it reached out to gay people rather than condemning them to hell.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    The thing that struck me forcefully was the feeling of great age about the place. Standing on that old parade ground, which is now a cricket field, I could feel the dead generations crowding me. Here was the oldest settlement of freedmen in the Western world, no doubt. Men who had thrown off the bands of slavery by their own courage and ingenuity. The courage and daring of the Maroons strike like a purple beam across the history of Jamaica.
    Zora Neale Hurston (1891–1960)

    The principal office of history I take to be this: to prevent virtuous actions from being forgotten, and that evil words and deeds should fear an infamous reputation with posterity.
    Tacitus (c. 55–c. 120)

    Every library should try to be complete on something, if it were only the history of pinheads.
    Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. (1809–1894)
