About Paul Cameron

  • Paul Drummond Cameron (born November 9, 1939) is an American psychologist.
  • Cameron has been designated by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an anti-gay extremist.
  • While employed at various institutions, including the University of Nebraska, he conducted research on passive smoking, but he is best known today for his claims about homosexuality.
  • After a successful 1982 campaign against a gay rights proposal in Lincoln, Nebraska, he established the Institute for the Scientific Investigation of Sexuality (ISIS), now known as the Family Research Institute (FRI).
  • As FRI's chairman, Cameron has written contentious papers asserting associations between homosexuality and the perpetration of child sexual abuse and reduced life expectancy.
  • These have been heavily criticized by others in the field. In 1983, the American Psychological Association expelled Cameron for non-cooperation with an ethics investigation.
  • Position statements issued by the American Sociological Association, Canadian Psychological Association, and the Nebraska Psychological Association have each accused Cameron of misrepresenting social science research.
