On 17 May 1990, the World Health Organization removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders.  In 2001, China followed suit and officially scrapped homosexuality from the Chinese Classification of Mental Disorders.

10 years have passed since then, but the idea that homosexuality is a mental disorder is still alive and kicking in many Chinese minds.  A lot of mental health professionals are still treating homosexuality as a mental disorder, and numerous hospitals open clinics aimed at “curing homosexuals”, publicly boasting about their transformative successes with homosexual “patients”.  Tragically, those mental health professionals are often the first people approached by LGBT-people struggling with their sexual identity – while they might think they’re helping their patients with a “curing” program, hundreds of people worldwide who have gone through such programs have testified to the trauma’s they endured.  These cures don’t heal: they kill.

In this documentary, Queer Comrades takes you to the mental health world, introducing you to experts who are fighting the misguided LGBT conceptions of their colleagues, and featuring 2 “ex-patients” who are adamant to tell the world about the dangers of enlisting in LGBT “curing” programs.
