It's 1000 days since the U.K government promised to ban conversion therapy but still hasn't. James and Dan reflect on their BBC Radio 1 documentary 'Tell It: From Gay to NonGay' and chat to the co-director of CURED, a BFI Flare Festival documentary about the activists who brought about a 1973 victory in the movement for LGBTQ equality: the American Psychiatric Association’s decision to remove homosexuality from its manual of mental illnesses. Bennett Singer's movie perfectly explains that to 'cure' LGBQ+ people, we only need to be accepted.So why do Church and religion play a huge role in perpetuating stigma, discrimination and physical harm towards people because of their sexuality?We witnessed this trauma when we interviewed former Christian singer Vicky Beeching during our series about gay conversion therapy, 'Tell It: From Gay to NonGay?' and thanks to BBC Sounds, you can hear an incredibly moving preview from our series in today's episode.It's not an overly triggering episode, but we will issue a low-key trigger warning here just to be safe.Email us about 'conversion therapy' at any time, we're here to help - us@gaynongay.comLINKS:Listen to our BBC Sounds series.
