Vymazat Garrarda Conleyho


Skrze návodných Dvanáct kroků církevního programu založených výhradně na studii Bible měl být mladý spisovatel Garrard Conley schopen objevit svou heterosexualitu, stát se ex-gayem, očistit se od nečistých tužeb a posílit svou víru v Boha, aby odčinil své hříchy. Navzdory trýznivé a mnohdy brutální cestě, kterou si musel projít, však našel sílu a pochopení, aby namísto nesmyslné „léčby“ začal hledat své vlastní já a odpuštění.

Eltörölt fiú


Az autókereskedőből lett baptista lelkész fia, Garrard Conley tizenkilenc éves korában kénytelen volt egy, az egész életét megváltoztató döntést hozni a szülei előtt. Vagy beleegyezik, hogy részt vesz egy egyház által támogatott terápiás programban, amely "kigyógyítja" a homoszexualitásból, vagy pedig elveszíti mindenét, a családját, a barátait és az Istent, akihez eddig minden nap imádkozott. A Love in Action intézményesített programja és a Biblia segítségével heteroszexuálisként, a bűnös késztetésektől megtisztulva és istenhitében erősebben kellett volna felemelkednie. Garrard azonban a borzalmas és brutális módszerek ellenére végül azt az erőt találta meg, amely a valódi énje felfedezéséhez, valamint a megbocsátáshoz és kitöréshez vezette. Az eltemetett múlt és az árnyékban töltött évek súlyával szembesülve Garrard nyomon követi a család, a hit és a közösség összetett viszonyait. Az Eltörölt fiú gyönyörű, őszinte és megható emlékirat a szeretetről, a megértésről. A mindent legyőző szeretet testamentuma. A könyvből az Oscar-díjas Nicole Kidman és Russell Crowe, valamint az Oscar-díjra jelölt Lucas Hedges főszereplésével Joel Edgerton készített filmet.

Boy Erased Movie Tie-In


The son of a Baptist pastor and deeply embedded in church life in small town Arkansas, as a young man Garrard Conley was terrified and conflicted about his sexuality. When Garrard was a nineteen-year-old college student, he was outed to his parents, and was forced to make a life-changing decision: either agree to attend a church-supported conversion therapy program that promised to "cure" him of homosexuality; or risk losing family, friends, and the God he had prayed to every day of his life. Through an institutionalized Twelve-Step Program heavy on Bible study, he was supposed to emerge heterosexual, ex-gay, cleansed of impure urges and stronger in his faith in God for his brush with sin. Instead, even when faced with a harrowing and brutal journey, Garrard found the strength and understanding to break out in search of his true self and forgiveness. By confronting his buried past and the burden of a life lived in shadow, Garrard traces the complex relationships among family, faith, and community. At times heart-breaking, at times triumphant, Boy Erased is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.
