The Private World Of Gay Conversion Therapy

It seems almost unthinkable that a young person in Australia today can still be told that being gay is disgusting or perverted, that being attracted to someone of the same sex means there's something wrong with you or that you're possessed by some unholy demon.

That's what happened to Chris Csabs. He, along with Dr Timothy Jones, the author of the report into gay conversion therapy in Australia, explain the damage the religious practise can have on young minds.


Host/Producer: Claire Murphy

Executive Producer: Elle Beattie

Audio Producer: Ian Camilleri

Thanks to our special guests LGBTQ advocate Chris Csabs and Cultural Historian Dr Timothy Jones.
