Gay 'cures'? There shouldn't be an app for that. But, there's a new one called "Setting Captives Free," available in both the Apple iTunes and Google Play stores, meant to teach you how to stop being gay.

“Gay cures” prey on people who are deeply worried they might be gay, convincing them that they have a serious illness. That can lead desperate people to depression or suicide.

Please sign now to ask Google and Apple to drop this and all other gay 'cure' apps!

Reject all harmful apps from your stores that try to 'cure' people of being gay.

Practices that try to change people's sexual orientation have been denounced by the American Psychiatric Association, Pan-American Health Organization and many governments. Make sure your stores aren't promoting this kind of dangerous hate.
