A film project being developed by the Association of Gay and Lesbian
Psychiatrists (AGLP) has won a $10,000 grant from the Kerr Foundation. AGLP
will use the grant to help produce a film in which psychiatrists and mental
health professionals discuss homosexuality and "reparative"
therapies to "cure" it.
AGLP members are participating in a campaign to raise the $50,000 needed to
produce the film and are about one-third of the way toward that goal,
according to David Scasta, M.D., chair of the AGLP film project. AGLP hopes
the film will educate people about homosexuality and mental health and correct"
misinformation" about the topic that is being widely
Information about the AGLP film project, including how to make a
contribution, is posted online at<www.aglp.org>.▪
