Gay Conversion therepy A Joke
5 August 2018 | by startrekfan72See all my reviews

I enjoyed this film immensely it deals with an issue that is close to my heart as I am a Gay man, the subject at the start of the movie Gay conversion therapy the biggest bunch of Non anectodical. The American Psychiatric Association APA opposes psychiatric treatment "based upon the assumption that homosexuality per se is a mental disorder or based upon the a priori assumption that a patient should change his/her sexual homosexual orientation"8 and describes attempts to change sexual orientation by practitioners as unethical.6 It also states

this is a film that will make you think and I mean think on a deep metaphysical level it will make you think about your attitudes and how hate is WRONG. I do not recommend this film for kids under 16 due to Brief Sexual content that is not Inappropriate and this film deals with adult issues and themes Please Only upper age Teens Sixteen and above I would rate it PG 13+++++ and give it Ten Stars this is a very emotional film full of complex issues But that being said it is a very heart felt story that is very well written Kudos to the director and the editor and Thank you for your great film
