The Son Of A Baptist Pastor And Deeply Embedded In Church Life In Small Town Arkansas, As A Young Man Garrard Conley Was Terrified And Conflicted About His Sexuality.


When Garrard Was A Nineteen-Year-Old College Student, He Was Outed To His Parents, And Was Forced To Make A Life-Changing Decision: Either Agree To Attend A Church-Supported Conversion Therapy Program That Promised To "Cure" Him Of Homosexuality; Or Risk Losing Family, Friends, And The God He Had Prayed To Every Day Of His Life. Through An Institutionalised Twelve-Step Program Heavy On Bible Study, He Was Supposed To Emerge Heterosexual, Ex-Gay, Cleansed Of Impure Urges And Stronger In His Faith In God For His Brush With Sin. Instead, Even When Faced With A Harrowing And Brutal Journey, Garrard Found The Strength And Understanding To Break Out In Search Of His True Self And Forgiveness.


By Confronting His Buried Past And The Burden Of A Life Lived In Shadow, Garrard Traces The Complex Relationships Among Family, Faith, And Community. At Times Heartbreaking, At Times Triumphant, This Memoir Is A Testament To Love That Survives Despite All Odds.
