BOY ERASED

Synopsis

The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small town Arkansas, Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality. When Garrard was nineteen he was outed to his parents, and was forced to either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program that promised to “cure” him of homosexuality, or risk losing family, friends and the God he had prayed to every day of his life.
