LGBTQ & Allies Group Movie & Discussion: Boy Erased

All are invited to join PIlgrim LGBTQ & Allies group to view and discuss the movie, Boy Erased.

Boy Erased is a 2018 American biographical drama film based on Garrard Conley's 2016 memoir of the same name. Jared Eamons, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, must overcome the fallout after being outed as gay to his parents. His father and mother struggle to reconcile their love for their son with their beliefs. Fearing a loss of family, friends and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its leader and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self.

Boy Erased premiered at the Telluride Film Festival on September 1, 2018, and also screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film was theatrically released in the United States on November 2, 2018. It has been generally praised by movie critics and we look forward to a thought-provoking discussion following our viewing.

Doors open at 6:15. This event is free and light snacks will be provided. Please join us!
