Queer Film Festival: Boy Erased
A true story of one young man's struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity. The son of a Baptist preacher in a small American town, is forced to participate in a church-supported gay conversion program after being forcibly outed to his parents at age 19. Now he is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program - or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith.
