Boy Erased - Melbourne film screening

Join us to watch the unreleased film, Boy Erased and take action against conversion therapy and sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts in Australia

Thousands of Australians have taken action to end conversion therapy and sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts. Believe it or not, sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts still happen in Australia today. Therapy tries to make LGBTQ people think they are sick or broken, and shame them out of being themselves.

Young people are often the target of these efforts.

With survivors of conversion therapy and thousands of activists like you we are calling on the government to end this horrific and harmful practice.

We’ve joined forces with Universal Pictures and Palace Cinemas to bring you a pre-release screening of Boy Erased, the new film by Writer, Director & Co-Star Joel Edgerton, starring Academy Award® nominee Lucas Hedges, and Academy Award® winners Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe, in their first on-screen collaboration.

The film tells the story of Jared (Hedges), the son of a Baptist pastor in a small American town, who is outed to his parents (Kidman and Crowe) at age 19. Jared is faced with an ultimatum: attend a conversion therapy program – or be permanently exiled and shunned by his family, friends, and faith. Boy Erased is the true story of one young man’s struggle to find himself while being forced to question every aspect of his identity and is based on the memoir of Garrad Conley.

This is a free event, to attend please RSVP. If you are unable to attend please remove your RSVP so someone else may take your spot. If this event has hit capacity, please email joel.clark@amnesty.org.au to be placed on a waiting list - - include in your email the name of all attendees, and the city you wish to see the movie in.
