1 BoyErasedThe son of a Baptist pastor, Garrard Conley was outed to his parents at 19, and was faced with an ultimatum: go to “ex-gay” therapy and be “cured” or risk losing his family, friends, and church community. He went. A compelling story of perseverance and humanity, Boy Erased digs deep into a life lived in shadow, the story of a survivor and not of the establishment (which have largely been the voices heard speaking out about ex-gay therapy).
