The 64-year-old actor was horrified when he started researching the practise for his new film
"They/Them" and is eager to spread awareness of the horrors it can lead to.
It involves using emotional or physical therapy to try to stop or suppress someone from being gay or from living as a different gender.
Due to the fact that more than half of the LGBTQ+ population in the US currently resides in a state where
conversion therapy is still legal, a new campaign has been started through his nonprofit organisation,
SixDegrees.org, to raise money to support Born Perfect, a project of the National Center for Lesbian
Lesbian Rights that works within the legal system to keep LGBTQ+ people safe. The campaign also aims to end conversion therapy altogether.
