Reno’s Yvette Schneider for decades worked trying to convert people who are gay into being straight. She was one of the leading figures in what’s called the "ex-gay" Christianity movement. Today, however, she is speaking out against the damage done by those who believe you can "pray away" homosexuality. Schneider is featured in the new Netflix documentary called "Pray Away." Her message: trying to change people’s sexuality is damaging, and there is no credible evidence it works. She uses herself as a primary example.
"Pray Away" is available on Netflix Aug. 3, 2021.
