Pray Away: A Conversation about Healing from Conversion Therapy
Sunday, Nov 7: Movie @ 2 pm PT; Panel discussion @ 4 pm PT
Hosted by Shelter For The Spirit and MCC of Portland, at The Q Center and via Zoom.
A showing of the Netflix documentary film “Pray Away” followed by a panel discussion with clergy, therapists, and those who were involved in the “ex-gay” movement. Meet our panelists:
Our goal is to identify the experience and effects of religious wounding from the “ex-gay movement” and provide support and resources for those seeking healing. In addition to the panelists, there will be interfaith chaplains on hand (both on site & on zoom) to support the well-being of those who may be triggered by the film.
Per safety guidelines, in person attendance is limited to 25 people and all will be required to be masked. Zoom attendance for the panel is supported by a moderator, with breakout rooms for support from interfaith chaplains.
Participants will be given a resource document for other supports available for their continued healing. Those only attending the panel are encouraged to watch the documentary on Netflix prior to the panel discussion.
