In the 1970s, five men struggling with being gay in their Evangelical church started a Bible study to help each other leave the “homosexual lifestyle.” They quickly received over 25,000 letters from people asking for help and formalized as Exodus International, the largest and most controversial conversion therapy organization in the world.
But leaders struggled with a secret: their own “same-sex attractions” never went away. After years as superstars in the religious right, many of these men and women have come out as LGBTQ, disavowing the very movement they helped start. Focusing on the dramatic journeys of former conversion therapy leaders, current members, and a survivor, PRAY AWAY chronicles the “ex gay” movement’s rise to power, its unscientific influence, and its legacy of profound harm.

From executive producers Ryan Murphy and Jason Blum, and director Kristine Stolakis, watch Pray Away on August 3, only on Netflix:

  1. Well how about that, the ex-LGBT community is getting more acknowledgement. I got news for you LGBT people and their allies: ex-LGBT people don’t practice conversion therapy. They are just as much against it as you are because it gives them a bad rep. Exodus, Freedom March, and Changed Movement just offer a safe space for people telling their story about struggling with homosexuality. At worst, ex-LGBT people just practice sexual celibacy after finding God. No one forced them to do anything, and they certainly don’t try to be straight again after finding God. That happens down the road. Many of those people go on to start families and felt more whole after they left the LGBT lifestyle. For all your all’s talk about love and tolerance, you seem very intolerant towards people that have a different experience with homosexuality. Perhaps it’s the fact that because no one is actually born gay, that reality shatters your world. Either way, good work on acknowledging the ex-LGBT community’s existence.
