    The scene in this movie in which someone is physically beaten with a Bible never happened and is made up. It's not in the book either.

    Good interview. Thanks for making this issue visible. Conversion therapy is a form of spiritual censorship. We aren't really talking about sex; we are talking about love.

    Looks very interesting. I have always supported human rights and I don't buy what the far right is trying to sale. I am a Christian but I have freed myself from religion and legalism. If you love your child, you will accept them.

    Conversion therapy is honestly just terrible and somewhere nobody should go. One day, I accidentally came out to my mom as a lesbian and she flipped out and attacked me 2 times. Tried for the third time but I managed to defend myself. Then, I had to comfort her and my mom threatened to throw me into therapy and that my dad will kill me if he found out. I had to put myself back into the closet and so far she “thinks” I’m “straight”. I’m not going to conversion therapy and once I’m 18 (which is next year) I’m going to find a safer place. My parents are 100% homophobic and religious as heck because they are from the Middle East.

    • Yaren Ozbay

      Anas Lotfi I’ve know my sexuality for years. You know what, whatever! It’s my opinion about the Middle East and I actually don’t give an F about other people say to me anymore. I know I’m a lesbian and I’m proud of it! I know I’m not racist because I am Middle Eastern and I’m just expressing my point of view about it. You have a nice day as well and just don’t say anything back because I’m done saying what I want to say. I’m A Lesbian and I’m Proud of it! I’ll kiss a girl and marry a girl one day. Thank you for your comments, have a nice idea and thank you for sharing your opinion. Bye now🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈❤️

      +Yaren Ozbay I am actually from there I don't need to do a research, you're the one that needs to open their mind it's 2018 wake up. oh! and by the way I know gay people and it doesn't really matter nobody is willing to waste their time with you just because you're lesbian/gay and I am sorry that you have such parents. I wish you all the best, really it is so hard trying to pretend to be something you're not.

    • Yaren Ozbay
      Yaren Ozbay 11 days ago

      Anas Lotfi It’s not like that in the Middle East? Are you sure? You are sure people in the Middle East who are gay aren’t being beaten up, hanged, thrown into jail, having their property and belongings destroyed? I’m not being racist at all because the Middle East is the most homophobic. And I can prove it because I’ve done research about it and my parents are Turkish. So, sorry dear I’m not racist and I always speak the truth. Have a nice day and continue being so narrow minded. Open your eyes more and see what the people in the Middle East are actually doing to the LGBTQ+ community. Bye❤️

    I'm sorry, but i've been watching Troye on youtube since before he came out. I remember him releasing his coming out video and what a big deal it was. For him to just say so casually to the audience, "i'm gay by the way" I could cry.

    I am gay and have been waiting to see this movie as I read the book, which by the way is very good. It should be a must read for every parent who has a child that comes out. I didn't come out to my family until I was 32. I also was raised Catholic and they tell you you are going to hell if you are gay. My mother didn't accept me at the beginning but my father did even though he had made disparaging remarks about homosexuals before I came out. It is a VERY hard thing to do to come out, but since then I don't regret it. BTW Troye Sivan's song "The Good Side" is REALLY good, check it out.

    People behind conversion camps are idiots for thinking sexual identities can be changed by praying them away. I mean aren't they updated with the latest scientific studies on how homosexuality is rooted in genetics and definitely not a preference so as to be alterable.

    AWW I love him. Well it's okay to accept who you really are, just cherish every single part of you, no matter how wounded and abnormal you are. Maybe it's easy for me to say this kind of things cause I'm not part of the community, but I still believes that every single human being in this world should have a deeper insight to everything that is being unfolded in their surroundings and in their mind. Nothing matters more than yourself.

    Which would be better. The Miseducation of Cameron Post or Boy Erased. Please be the former. I prefer watching a movie about a homosexual girl going through gay conversion therapy camp (played by Chloë Grace Moretz who knows how that feels like from her gay brothers) directed by a bisexual woman instead of one that is directed by a straight man.
