Up North Pride is partnering with the Traverse City Film Festival to present: THE MISEDUCATION OF CAMERON, a new film, based on Emily Danforth's 2012 young adult novel, following a high school girl who's sent to a Christian conversion center after she's caught kissing her girlfriend.

Join us Thursday, August 2 at 9 pm at the Central High School Auditorium for a special screening.

Tickets are $15 and you can get them here from the Traverse City Film Festival.

 

The Miseducation of Cameron Post won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance this year, and is being talked about by Rolling Stone, NPR, USA Today, and more!

About the film:
One of the great, under-reported human rights tragedies of modern America is the existence of gay conversion therapy, which has only been outlawed for minors in 13 states. (Sadly, Michigan isn’t one of them.) Based on the modern classic novel, this Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner brings this ongoing atrocity powerfully to life. Chloë Grace Moretz plays the titular Cameron, a teenager caught with another girl in the backseat of a car on prom night. When her guardians pull her out of school and send her to a gay conversion therapy camp, Cameron’s world is sent into upheaval. But Cameron also realizes that, for the first time, she’s surrounded by other LGBTQ teens, and suddenly feels part of a support group that’s committed to resisting the oppressive ideology the camp preaches.
