Episode Date
4. Smid
00:45:11

You’re openly gay. Then you become the leader of the largest ex-gay organization and, under your leadership, many lives are destroyed. You leave that organization, come out as gay - again - and find love. Do you deserve to be happy? This is a story of identity, making amends and John Smid’s reckoning with his life.

3. Dr. Davison and the Gay Cure
00:38:51

This is one of the rarest stories of all: a man who publicly experiences a profound change of heart.


This is a profile of one of the gods of psychotherapy, who through a reckoning with his own work (oddly enough in the pages of Playboy magazine), becomes the first domino to fall in science’s ultimate disowning of the “gay cure.”

2. Mama Bears to the Rescue
00:42:04

What if you’re a mother who’s a leader in the Christian community and your kid comes out as gay? Who do you call? The Mama Bears.

 

This is the story of one woman who created a supergroup of like-minded mothers who faced down threats of excommunication because they refused to disown their kids, and will step in if you disown yours.
