NSU, 1200 S Jay St, Aberdeen, SD 57401, USA
About the event
Pray Away produced and directed by Kristine Stolakis follows the survivors of "conversion therapy" and former leaders. [As a note conversion therapy is NOT a true sanctioned form of therapy and the intent is to make LGBTQ+ straight and/or cisgender.]
Content warnings include Transphobia Homophobia Religious extremism Discussion of the aids crisis Brief mention of childhood sex abuse Parent not affirming their trans child Mention of self-harm One of the former spokespeople has a slight redemption arc (can be triggering to survivors)
After the film screening, there will be a community event where people can send messages to their legislatures urging them to ban conversion therapy in SD and nationally as well as write messages of hope and love for a community quilt.
So please join us on
