To highlight the trauma ex-gay ministries often cause families, TWO has released an exclusive video documenting the story of “ex-gay” survivor Robert Elster, who participated in “ex-gay” programs for 20 years. Convinced by these groups that he was cured, he married his wife Judy for 15 years and they had two children. Unfortunately, the marriage ended because Robert had not become straight. He had been sold false hope and bought into what he now calls his “inauthentic self.” Today, he lives as an out, proud openly gay man in California.
