The ex-gay movement and Exodus International spotlighted in new documentary
The documentary Real Hope, Real Truth, Real Answers is an independent project by a researcher seeking to capture the essence of the Christian ex-gay movement. It is suitable for home viewing, the academic classroom, and the Sunday school classroom. It offers insights on same-sex attraction to everyone who takes the time to watch it.
Many people are unaware that an organized Christian ex-gay movement exists in America, and are surprised to learn that it is over thirty years old. The lead organization in this movement is Exodus International, which began as a conference in 1976 organized by individuals who had or were seeking to overcome their homosexual desires and behavior. In every year since 1976 Exodus International has held an annual conference, now called the Freedom Conference. The documentary peers into the heart and soul of the Christian ex-gay movement by taking the viewer into the 2006 Exodus Freedom Conference. It presents the conference from a variety of first hand perspectives.
Gay activists frequently call the actions of Exodus International hateful and harmful to gay people. Their reasons are predominantly political. If you are looking for the truth on homosexuality, you need to look at both sides of its many issues. This documentary presents the Christian ex-gay movement as it really is. A viewpoint rarely spotlighted accurately.
