Chloe Grace Moretz will take the lead role in new film The Miseducation of Cameron Post, the story of a young woman put into a gay conversion therapy centre when she’s caught with the prom queen.
Forced into the centre by her aunt, orphan Cameron must come to terms with her sexuality while those around her try to ‘fix’ her. Please view it or rent this movie – money raised can then be put into other projects that support our LGBTI community. We need to educate, shame and criticize the ‘mind think’ of extremists. This therapy, while outlawed in many states/countries – is STILL practised. Like female mutiliation, it needs to be STOPPED!
BASED ON A NOVEL
Based on the controversial coming-of-age novel by Emily Danforth, the film is directed by Desiree Akhavan – most famous for her film Appropriate Behaviour, which told the story of Persian bisexuals living in Brooklyn.

This would make it possible for gays to be refused employment and housing. They could also be refused services.

This scientific delcaration, signed by 182 countries, was written in March 2016.
