BOY ERASED is a US drama in which a gay teenager is pressured into attending conversion therapy.

Violence

There is a scene of sexual violence in which a teenager is raped.

There is a discrimination theme involving scenes of 'gay conversion' therapy, expressions of homophobic attitudes and infrequent use of homophobic terms including 'faggot'. A teenager is repeatedly struck with a Bible during a public 'exorcism'. The work as a whole does not condone discriminatory language or behaviour. Occasional moderate sex references include brief references to pornography, masturbation, erections and digital penetration. Other issues include infrequent use of strong language ('f**k') and infrequent marijuana misuse. There are also brief verbal references to suicide.
