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 institutionalised 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 heartbreaking, at times triumphant, this memoir is a testament to love that survives despite all odds.

    Then, one night in early May, for reasons I can’t remember, something drew me to his dorm. It could have been the crushing loneliness I often felt during that period of my life.

    The counselor wasn’t here, not in this place, though he had already patterned his thoughts into the white mass my mind had become.

    I knew it would be impossible to ignore this movie, that my parents would soon be calling to ask if I’d seen it, and I thought seeing it with Charles and Dominique might give me some perspective, allow me to mock it in some way
