As part of "National Coming Out Day", some local gay groups take a tour of Focus on the Family. They want to start a dialogue between the religious and gay communities.
About 50 people from the gay community gathered for the tour as Focus on the Family opened their doors and welcomed them.
Members of the gay community say they chose to tour the facility in a non-confrontational way.
They're asking the conservative Christian group for recognition and acceptance.
Focus on the Family says they love all people even though God dissapproves their practices.
The gay and lesbian community says that makes it difficult for them to live comfortably in Colorado Springs.
