An interviewer leans forward and asks, “Yvette, would you just talk from your heart to those who are trapped in the lifestyle?” Looking into the camera, Yvette Cantu Schneider describes her three-year “struggle to overcome” same-sex attractions. It’s a chilling moment, complicated by the fact that Schneider, who worked for years promoting the now thoroughly discredited practice of gay conversion therapy, has come full circle in her personal journey. When she looks at the tape of that interview now, she expresses deep regret for her role in this movement.
