A blond boy confiscated the journal and yanked a bunch of pages free from the binding. Detecting and destroying FIs was how you got the gay out. He was 19 when he entered LIA for a two-week evaluation. Torture is a strong word, but if we get a museum that honours the centuries of suffering inflicted on queer people, a whole wing will need to be dedicated to that unique form of persecution known as conversion, or reparative, therapy, by which zealots acting under the banner of faith have sought to turn one sexual instinct into another.
