A Vue cinema is to host a screening of a film advocating gay ‘cure’ therapy, PinkNews can reveal.

The Core Issues Trust, an evangelical Christian group which advocates for efforts to change sexual orientation, announced the screening of documentary ‘Voices of the Silenced: Experts, Evidences and Ideologies’.

Update: Vue International has dropped the screening.

The film’s creators claim it features 15 people who have “come out of homosexual practises” thanks to therapy or religion – and challenges the “myth… that people are born gay”.

Nearly every medical body in the world has disavowed gay cure therapy.

But PinkNews can reveal that the screening is set to take place at the Vue Piccadilly Circus cinema in London on Thursday evening.

The group appears to have privately hired a cinema screen for the private event.

PinkNews has contacted Vue reps for comment but did not immediately get a response.

A release from the Core Issues Trust says: “Voices of the Silenced: Experts, Evidences and Ideologies, was filmed over two years in eight countries.

“It promotes the stories of fifteen individuals coming out of homosexual practices. With the support of a range of international and UK experts specialising in the care of this marginalised population group, Voices of the Silenced challenges the closedown on debate about the value of therapeutic support undertaken in ways that are respectful of client goals and individual rights to change.
