This video was taken at EXODUS International's final conference just before the most recognized 'pray the gay away' group finally shut its doors for good. After decades of attempting to promote Reparative Therapy, claiming that being gay was a "choice" and that gays could be led out of homosexuality through counceling; Exodus President, Alan Chambers finally admitted, 'ex-gay' & 'reparative therapy' does not work. He went on to state that in his over 10 years of counceling gay people who sought change, not a one of them had changed their sexuality from gay to straight.

After coming to this harsh realization and after some soul searching Alan Chambers recognized the grave harm he and his group had done to vulnerable gay people and their families who were led to believe that gay people can live heterosexual lives if they only trust in God enough.

Alan Chambers invited devout Christian parents Rob & Linda Robertson to speak at Exodus's final conference to discuss their gay son's fatal 6 year ordeal with reparative / pray-the-gay-away therapy, which ultimately led to Ryan's drug overdose.

This is the Robertson's story.
