Boy Erased is the adaptation of Garrard Conley’s memoirs published in 2016. Jared is nineteen years old when his parents learn about his homosexuality. He is then sent to a conversion therapy centre where he is subjected to a veritable mental torture to force him to change and correct his sinful ways and Satan’s influence.
