Watch: Exclusive clip from 'The Miseducation of Cameron Post'

The new gay conversion therapy hits UK cinemas on September 7

2018-09-06

With gay conversion therapy drama The Miseducation of Cameron Post set to hit UK cinemas tomorrow (September 7), Attitude have exclusively got a scene from the upcoming movie directed by Desiree Akhavan.

The film follows Cameron Post (Chloe Grace Moretz) who gets caught having sex with the school prom queen.

She is then sent away to a gay conversion therapy camp by her aunt and uncle but she makes friends with Adam and Jane and the three navigate their time at the camp.

Post is told she has to “overcome her struggle” with the “sin of same-sex attraction” while at the God’s Promise camp.

In one poignant moment in the movie, she says: “I’m tired of feeling disgusted with myself”.

In the new clip, we see the other members of the camp talking about when they realised they were attracted to other people of the same sex and possible reasons why these feelings came about.

The film also stars Forrest Goodluck who features in Attitude’s September Style issue, available in print and digital now.

The subject of gay conversion therapy isn’t something the young star was well-versed in either.

“Of course, I knew about it,” says 20-year-old Forrest. “You hear about the dark things that have happened to people, but I didn’t know any specifics.”
