For more info on George Michael's recent tweeted rages against the press, watch the film (he commissioned) Hiding Out below. It's an excerpt from a documentary on Californian boot camps for teen gays compelled to undergo so-called aversion therapy and on hidden 'safe houses' where they find refuge. The myth of the therapy, which involves torture and other abuses, is that homosexuality does not exist but is a product of confusion. Many kids who escape the camps are rounded up by the police and returned to these fake clinics.
This is the story that UK newspapers chose to ignore.
On his Twitter page @GeorgeMichael, the star recounts showing this film to a bunch of 'gay and straight campaigners for civil and gay right at Equality Rocks, a concert in Washington. To my great surprise, it was to no avail. Absolutely nothing came of it.'
