Plot: 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 formalized as Exodus International, the largest and most controversial conversion therapy organization in the world. But leaders struggled with a secret: their own “same-sex attractions” never went away. After years as Christian superstars in the religious right, many of these men and women have come out as LGBTQ, disavowing the very movement they helped start. Focusing on the dramatic journeys of former conversion therapy leaders, current members, and a survivor, PRAY AWAY chronicles the “ex gay” movement’s rise to power, persistent influence, and the profound harm it causes.

Not the Story I Expected Or Wanted
So many children and families have had their lives torn apart by conversion therapy, but instead of telling their story, this documentary focuses on the terrible people who caused that harm.
Okay….Kind of Missed the Mark
I was expecting many stories from those who had to experience “conversion therapy” and what they went through. This played more like buyer’s remorse from “ex-ex gays”, with some random storyline thrown in about a maybe former Trans person who hosts parades for ex trans people…or something (I do not understand why that was thrown in here. It played out like filler.)
Conversion therapy stories are important to tell, but the way this was presented did not capture the damage that’s done when this whole “pray it away” philosophy is crammed down people’s throats and forced upon the young. I’d say watch it just so you know this was and still is a thing. But it’s not giving the whole story.
