ROOM 1011
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

In this talk, Sheldon W. Helms describes the history of attempts to approach homosexuality as an illness, and efforts by some to help gays go straight. The techniques they use are not only ineffective, but often leave victims susceptible to shame, depression, and even increased risk of suicide.
