How Are Conversion Camps Depicted In Movies?

Conversion therapy camps are locations, almost exclusively based on Christian values, where LGBTQIA+ teenagers and, in some cases, adults are sent to “correct” their sexuality, gender identity, etc. These methods of “curing” the attendees are horrific and lead to long-term trauma and further struggles to accept oneself for queer individuals if that self-acceptance even emerges. Unfortunately, these places are still in operation around the world, including in the United States of America. They’re a further reflection of how queerness is often seen as an aberration to erase, rather than the reality that it’s just another part of a complex human being. Given the global presence of conversion therapy camps, it shouldn’t be surprising that certain pieces of cinema over the years have attempted to tackle these abusive practices.
