Mmmm, I don’t think so. Basically, what those “clinics” do is make people feel so shameful about their sexual orientation that they convince themselves that they are wrong. It traumatizes people to the point where they change themselves. It’s a super dangerous, hurtful thing to do to people.

Hurricane Sandy destroyed the Ali Forney Center’s drop-in center for LGBT youth in Manhattan, where young people in New York City were able to go for food, showers, clothing, medical care, HIV testing and treatment and substance abuse services.
Donate on the center’s website, or text GLAAD to 80888 to make a $10 donation until 11/8.
Before I came out I was terribly scared of what people would think and how it affected the way my friends acted around me. But I started to tell my closest friends, who I knew wouldn’t act any different. Then they helped me tell my other friends and most of them already pretty much knew. The ones that didn’t were fine, and still treated me the same. There were some people that weren’t as close, or were intimidated by me, but I didn’t want them as a friend afterwards. As long as you have a group of supporting friends you’ll be fine.
