Submit Questions: Lesbian Torture “Clinics” in Ecuador Video Discussion

Submit Questions: Lesbian Torture “Clinics” in Ecuador Video Discussion

Lesbians in Ecuador are getting locked up in “clinics” that they describe as torture camps with the goal of making them straight and on Wednesday Dos Lives will speak with three organizations in Ecuador who are working to shut down the more than 200 so-called “clinics” and we’ll share how you can get involved and help stop the violence.

We encourage you to submit questions for our special Spanish-language video interview with Taller de Comunicación Mujer, Artikulación Esporádika, and Fundación Causana based in Quito, Ecuador.

What would you like to find out? We’re taking questions until 6:30 p.m. Wednesday EST. Tweet us @DosLives or leave a comment below. The full video interview will be posted on Dos Lives Thursday as well as on the Dos Lives podcast available on iTunes.

      Who are the organizations behind those “clinics”? Who is funding them? It’s a Catholic thing or a Christian one?

      When I went to Ecuador I was in shock because the obvious presence of Church everywhere (at least in Quito). But it went worse when I found about the presence of Christians (Evangelicals and others). They are really into communities. I met someone linked with one of those organizations. She was the author of books and articles on “sexual healing” which means, of course, conversion therapies.

      I bought the book about healing homosexuality and, as I suspected, it was a pastiche between psychoanalysis and religion.

      Here what I’m taking about:
      The organization:

      (see the lists of workshops!)

      The book: http://books.google.ca/books?id=MeZlcgAACAAJ&dq=cuando+el+homosexual+pide+ayuda&hl=en&ei=TzbETo6-Iur30gGU74CeDw&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1&ved=0CDAQ6AEwAA

      If people of Ecuador believe there is a God who creates every thing, do they believe that he makes mistakes when he creates people of genders other than male female?  After all, many species their God created are of several various sexual origins, so why would humans be different?
