On “Pray Away” -the New Documentary on “Conversion Therapy”

Luke Wilson is a survivor of “conversion therapy.” He has written about his experiences at Liberty University for Religion Dispatches, Queerty, and other outlets. In this conversation, Luke provides his response to the Netflix doc “Pray Away.” They discuss the complexities of those who are both survivor and perpetrator sharing their stories and taking the spotlight. They also discuss the (unsurprisingly) blithe reactions to the film by Evangelical sources, namely the Gospel Coalition.
