Thinking Gay

IFTCC LIVE Broadcasts are scheduled every second week (Thursdays).
Introduction clip:

*The term “Conversion Therapy” was first used by a gay activist, Dr Douglas Haldemen and is intended to be pejorative. It is a term imposed on any person or organisation that does not suport the normalisation of homosexuality or approves the association of gender with bilogical sex, thus rejecting Queer Theory. Neither Core Issues Trust nor the IFTCC practise “Conversion Therapy” neither do they promote any one “exotic” therapeutic or counselling approach. This series is dedicated to exposing why “Conversion Therapy” is a threat to the democratic rights and freedoms of our societies and to the mental health of our people.
