Please Join us for the last formal meeting (in its current format) to be held at Melbourne Freedom2b. We are thrilled to have Anthony Venn-Brown (co-founder of Freedom2b) as our guest speaker. As we go back to how it all how it all began.

Anthony writes:

“One of my favourite memes is of a grey haired, rather wrinkly lady, probably late 70’s early 80’s, sitting in a university lecture room surrounded by disinterested youth. Her hand is raised. The meme reads ‘Corrects history professor. Remembers being there.’

I’m working on my next book “The Rise and Fall of Conversion Therapy” It is commonly believed that religious gay conversion programs began in the US. This is not true.  I was one of the first in the world to go through this in a religious context. I asked myself the question. “Why was I in a program to change my sexual orientation in Australia, 1972, four years before Exodus was founded and eight years before a residential program existed in the US?” As I  began to research I found the source of the philosophy. I’ve joined dots that have never been joined before. Essentially this work will be rewriting history.”

Anthony is looking forward to sharing some of those discoveries with you at our October meeting along with other exciting news.

A night not to be missed!
