Our America with Lisa Ling
Christian from "Pray the Gay Away?" Finally Speaks Up, Comes Out
Christian was a young man featured in the original "Pray the Gay Away?" episodes. After at one point announcing that he had become successfully "ex-gay" by following the teachings of Exodus, Christian retreated from the world, throwing himself even deeper into a strict Christian lifestyle and abandoning elements of his own free-spirited personality that made him the person that he was. At the last minute, Our America producers flew Christian out to attend the confrontation and apology reading meeting with Michael Bussee and Alan Chambers. After sitting quietly without saying one word during the entire meeting, it is finally Christian's turn to speak up. Hear what he has to say in a revealing interview with Lisa Ling.
