Stop telling youth they can "pray away the gay!"

This petition had 938 supporters

In June, MTV aired an episode of True Life called, "I want to be straight." It featured two people who wanted to become straight. While MTV published helpful links on their website to legitimate organizations that help young people who are struggling like the Trevor Project, I believe that airing this episode is dangerous to young people.

Sexual orientation is not a choice. Even suggesting it is can be harmful to people who are struggling with their orientation.

MTV is still airing this episode of the "True Life" as a re-run. Tell them to stop before someone gets hurt.
