Protesters at cancelled gay ‘cure’ screening called homosexuality not normal and sinful


Attendees of a protest against the Vue cinema which cancelled a gay ‘cure’ therapy film said that gay people are addicted and labeled their behavior as abnormal and unnatural. Vue International dropped the screening of Voices of the Silenced: Experts, Evidences and Ideologies following a media backlash. The film tells the stories of 15 people who claim that they used to have same-sex attractions but overcame them with the help of God. The documentary was set to be shown by the Core Issues Trust, an evangelical Christian group which advocates for efforts to change people’s sexual orientation. Instead, the screening was discreetly moved to the Emmanuel Centre, an events venue just minutes away from the Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey and Big Ben.Around 40 people showed up to the 30-minute protest outside Vue Piccadilly Circus cinema in London, accompanied by four police officers.Core Issues Trust chief executive Dr Michael Davidson said as many as 90 protesters were present. Davidson said his organisation’s gay ‘cure’ film was “about patterning, about habits, about addictions in some cases, that some people want to do something about.”
