‘Boy Erased’ is a movie everyone should see
The movie “Boy Erased” is out in theaters as a limited release. It is not yet available in the Richmond area, but will release in Northern Virginia and Williamsburg on Nov. 15. As a conversion therapy survivor and activist in Virginia, I cannot stress how real this film is.
Exodus International and Love in Action were two names that I knew extremely well when I was an ex-gay. An ex-gay is someone who is either in conversion therapy and believes in the process or is living life believing that they have been cured. That was me.
This movie is so relevant to Virginia. Our House and Senate both voted to kill a bill (pass by indefinitely) to ban conversion therapy for minors, and our Department of Health Professions is pursuing regulations against conversion therapy.
I have seen many films attempt to tackle the topic of conversion therapy, but “Boy Erased” is the one that hits the closest to home for me. I encourage everyone to watch this film. ADAM TRIMMER. PRINCE GEORGE.
