Summary: Openly gay doctor Daniel Taheri will attempt to debunk controversial reparative therapy methods on a brand new reality television series.
TV doctor Daniel Taheri will tackle controversial reparative therapy methods on the new reality series, "Fix Me."
In an effort to test their medical legitimacy, Taheri, who is openly gay and married to a Florida High School Wrestling Coach, will apparently be filmed undergoing a number of the treatments himself before taking a "sexuality test," Out-Life magazine is reporting.
Taheri will also speak at length about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) patients who are desperate to become straight, as well as "ex-gay" patients who claim to have been "turned straight" as a result of the various therapy methods, according to reports.
Taheri, who is a well known Hollywood doctor who treats many celebrities, spoke at length about being openly gay in the medical profession as part of an interview with Out-Life.
"I've had to endure all of the homophobic comments from other doctors, especially when being trained in sexual health," he revealed.
"I never tried to hide my sexuality but never wove a flag either; If I were to be openly gay in my home country, I would be thrown in jail. I don't see it as being relevant. I am a doctor and not a 'gay doctor.'"
