Help End Ex-Gay Therapy

Let's Help Put an End to This Harmful Practice

  1. Only 5 states in the US have banned conversion therapy
  2. 76% of LGBT population lives in states with no laws banning conversion therapy for minors 
  3. Conversion therapy has been responsible for dozens of suicides, including trans teen Leelah Alcorn
I've written a book about my experience at Love in Action, the nation's largest residential 'ex-gay' facility in the country. The facility has since shut down, but many private practices and a few public organizations continue to spread the harmful brainwashing techniques that have caused many people to struggle with identity for years or even end their lives. I would like to use my platform to help spread awareness for this cause, and to continue ushering in a national dialogue on the subject. 

Conversion therapy is often seen as a joke or an "invisible issue." Let's help foreground the issue and bring about real change.

“Exceptionally well-written… This timely addition to the debate on conversion therapy will build sympathy for both children and parents who avail themselves of it while still showing how damaging it can be.” —Publishers Weekly, STARRED review
