Conversion therapy: it's the practice of trying to change a person's sexual orientation from homosexual or bisexual to heterosexual using psychological or religious interventions.

A new film called "Boy Erased" is based on the true story of a 19-year-old whose Baptist family put him in a conversion therapy center to "cure" his homosexuality.

While this story played out in Arkansas, conversion therapy is still allowed in New York state as well. Governor Cuomo says banning the practice is one of his priorities for his first 100 days of the legislative session.

Joining us to talk more about this are Samantha Howell, Executive Director of the New York Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers, and joining us from New York City is Mathew Shurka, co-founder of the Born Perfect Campaign. He was consulted on the film.
