A documentary on reparative therapy shows: Doctors in Germany treat gays to become heterosexual
A documentary on Conversion therapy (also called reparative therapy) reveals that there are doctors in Germany that consider homosexuality a disorder and therefore want to treat gays to become heterosexual. In a self-experiment, TV Journalist Christian Deker visited registered doctors that move in devout Christian circles. The doctors propose treatments that would change his sexual orientation from homosexual to heterosexual. Such treatments have been criticized as pseudoscience and have been a source of controversy in the United States and other countries.
The documentary by Christian Deker and Oda Lambrecht was broadcast for the first time in 2014 and caused outrage, not only within the gay community in Germany. It is available now with English subtitles.
