The upcoming Netflix documentary Pray Away about the “ex gay” movement in the church trailer has arrived!
The powerful trailer introduces us to the founders of Exodus International, the largest and most controversial conversion therapy organization in the world.
In the 1970s, five men struggling with being gay in their Evangelical church started a Bible study to help each other leave the “homosexual lifestyle.” They quickly received over 25,000 letters from people asking for help and Exodus International was birthed.
After years of being considered “Christian Superstars,” many of these men and women have come out as LGBTQ, denying the very movement they helped start.
Focusing on the dramatic journeys of former conversion therapy leaders, current members, and a survivor, the documentary chronicles the “ex gay” movement’s rise to power, persistent influence, and the profound harm it causes.
Streaming on Netflix August 3rd.
