Julie’s Story

This episode explores conversion therapy* within families, institutions, and communities. Julie experienced both subtle and explicit pressure to change who they were throughout their upbringing. It was in fact this project that supported Julie in realizing that they too had been subjected to this kind of harm. Julie shares with us their wish for people to embody their truths and explores the cultural messaging that excludes queer folks.
