In recognition of National Coming Out day, Circles of Support & Haven, A Place for All, will host a film and discussion event on Zoom on Monday, Oct. 11 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Tuesday, Oct. 12 from 6 – 8 p.m.
The film “PRAY AWAY” was created with the goal of supporting the acceptance, safety, and wellbeing of LGBTQ people. The film is an examination of the motivations that drive efforts to change sexual orientation or gender identity, deepening the audience’s understanding of the harms of “conversion therapy.”
On July 15, 2021 Governor Tim Walz signed an Executive Order banning the harmful practice of conversion therapy by licensed providers working with minors. The event is free and open to the public. Register by calling 218-999-5883. A Zoom meeting link will be provided by email. Circles of Support is a program of KOOTASCA Community Action.
