The Post and Courier has reported that the Hope for Wholeness founder 51 year-old McKrae Game came out as gay, nearly two years after he was fired from the faith-based conversion therapy program. Game is now trying to come to terms with the harm he inflicted when he was advocating for religious efforts to change a person’s sexuality. In an interview with the paper he stated “Conversion therapy is not just a lie, but it’s very harmful…. because it’s false advertising”. Game is till married to his wife of 23 years and is now trying to find a place within a community he vehemently attacked for over 20 years. He is one of several conversion therapists over the recent years who have come out as LGBTQ and subsequently proceeded to condem the practice. There are currently over 18 states that ban conversion therapy for minors, however South Carolina, where Hope for Wholeness is based, is not one of them.
