Pray Away: Release Date, Cast, Trailer and More!
Hello, Readers! Pray Away, a Netflix documentary film examines the controversial conversion treatment movement that erupted around the world in the twentieth century.
Conversion therapy is the dangerous belief that a person’s sexual orientation may be altered through prayer, psychological counseling, or physical intervention. Many LGBTQ teenagers and adults were persuaded or forced to join organizations that claimed to be able to assist them.
Pray Away, directed by Kristine Stolakis and executive-produced by Ryan Murphy, is about Exodus International, which was once one of the most powerful conversion therapy organizations in the world until it was revealed that some of its founders and leaders no longer believed in the therapies they were promoting.
Pray Away: Release Date
The documentary film will be available to view on Netflix on August 3rd, 2021.
On the 16th of June, 2021, the documentary made its global premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. The documentary was supposed to have its world premiere in April 2020, however, it had to be postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

What is this about?
The documentary film is about Exodus International, a humanitarian organization. It began as a prayer group for five guys who were dealing with being gay in their Evangelical church in the 1970s, to help each other abandon the “homosexual lifestyle.

Exodus International developed to become the world’s largest and most controversial conversion treatment organization during the next 30 years, with over 250 ministries in the United States and Canada and another 150 across the world.
The leaders, on the other hand, suffered with ‘same-sex inclinations,’ and many members of Exodus International have since come out as LGBTQ, disavowing the movement they created.
