We caught up with the director and cast of They/Them for the closing night of the prestigious OutFest.
Closing the 40th OutFest’s red carpet was none other than the Kevin Bacon led horror film They/Them.
Kevin Bacon and Carrie Preston star as a couple who run a Christian-oriented ‘gay conversion therapy’ camp in a remote, wooded area, preaching a contradictory philosophy of self-acceptance and what amounts to self-denial. A fresh busload of LGBT and non-binary youths show up for ‘treatment,’ most of them dispatched by their families hoping they will learn to conform to societal norms.
The film premieres on the Peacock streaming service this upcoming August 5, guaranteeing a wide potential audience.
