Lisa M. Diamond, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Gender Studies in the Department of Psychology at the University of Utah. She has won a number of awards for her work.
In 2000, Dr. Diamond published a study, "Sexual identity, attractions, and behavior among young sexual minority women over a 2 year period.
"This study was distorted by the so-called ex-gay therapy group NARTH. They claimed that Dr. Diamond's work shows that sexual orientation is "amenable to change."
Dr. Diamond also produced a second study, "Female Bisexuality From Adolescence to Adulthood: Results From a 10-Year Longitudinal Study" in Developmental Psychology (2008, Vol. 44, No 1., 5-14).
NARTH recently cited this study to support its anti-scientific belief that homosexuality is a mental disorder that should be treated.
Truth Wins Out informed Dr. Diamond about this misrepresentation of her research, and she agreed to discuss how her work was manipulated by NARTH.

edit: er, I grabbed the wrong study. This is not the study being referenced in the video. I'm just going to leave it up as additional reading in case anyone is into it.
I haven't read any of it yet, nor am I familiar with what NARTH has done with the data, but the study can be found below for reference.
