Kyle Roux, of South Africa, told the local NBC affiliate he was “shocked” to find out his image was being used to support a therapy debunked by the medical community. He said the photos was taken years ago and was now owned by a stock-image company.
Stock images are used by the highest bidder, purchased directly from the stock image company, with the models often having no say in how their image gets used.
“It just seems like there no place in today’s world for an organization that is promoting [being gay] as being some kind of deviant or distasteful lifestyle, because I’ve lived my life openly gay and happy for my entire life,” he said in a Skype interview.
Not only is Roux openly gay… he’s also not a twin.
