Specifically, it keeps track of when they came out, if it was voluntary, and if they started advocating homosexual rights, among other things. Here's the link: http://gayhomophobe.com/

Interesting to know.  Certainly the first website of that kind I've learned of!

If the average holds, a prominent homosexual homophobe should come out within a month or so.

Did it happen?  Regarding anybody who has the ability to recognise homophobia within themselves/the courage to admit to it I say good for them.  I certainly see those things as being positive!

Actually, silly me, was easy enough to get an idea from clicking on that link again.   Can see the 27th of July 2015 is the most recent date mentioned on the front page...

checked out the website.made no sense to me. I.m not anti- or pro-gay. people can act out and believe whatever they want to, as long as they dont infringe on the rights of others to do the same. and I fail to see how putting those people on the spot will encourage others to willfully abstain from homofobic behaviour

The point is that people listed on that website went to considerable effort to infringe on the rights of others, while also engaging in the same practices they were denouncing. Such hypocrisy deserves censure and appropriate punishment.

At the very least, it makes homophobic attitudes less acceptable and indeed suspect. It probably won't change the attitude of those committed to homophobic views, but it's another increment towards marginalizing such xenophobia and prejudice.
