Conversion therapy is the practice of trying to change a person’s sexual orientation, and is still practiced despite no longer having any real support from the medical community. On this week’s Line One, an Anchorage resident joins us to discuss growing up gay in the 70s and 80s, seeking out conversion therapy, and what happened when he decided to “be straight.”
