Wed, June 21st: "The Secret Life of Conversion Therapy: A Brief History" at the Free Library of Philadelphia, with a talk and Q&A by Wil Skelton

The Free Library will be hosting one more LGBTQ Pride event next Wednesday, June 21st, 4:00-7:00 p.m. at their main location, Parkway Central (1901 Vine Street) . Titled "The Secret Life of Conversion Therapy," the event will combine autobiographical perspective, a short film screening, and historical context to raise awareness around the state of conversion therapy in the U.S. today, and a sense of how that practice has evolved over time. We'll conclude the event with a talk and Q&A by La Salle University doctoral candidate in psychology, Wil Skelton, whose personal experience and professional work have cultivated a nuanced, on-the-ground perspective as to why people enter these therapeutic relationships (on both sides) and what the lasting repercussions can be. Feel free to get in touch if you have questions or feedback afterward.
