Summary

  • Profiles the journeys of four gay Christians who did everything possible to become heterosexual by following the treatment protocols of the so-called ex-gay ministries. The approaches taken by these religious groups range from shock therapy and hypnosis to gender coaching. Ultimately the therapy fails, even for the ministers in charge as they repeatedly scandalize themselves by "relapsing into gayness."
