The first trailer for the new gay conversion therapy movie The Miseducation of Cameron Post has been released.

The film – directed by Desiree Akhavan and starring Chloe Grace Moretz – is based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Emily M. Danfort and follows Cameron Post (Moretz) who gets caught having sex with the school prom queen.

She is then sent away to a gay conversion therapy camp by her aunt and uncle but she makes friends with Adam and Jane and the three navigate their time at the camp.

Post is told she has to “overcome her struggle” with the “sin of same-sex attraction” while at the God’s Promise camp.

In one poignant moment in the trailer, Post says: “I’m tired of feeling disgusted with myself”.

The film won the grand jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival in January and is slated for release this August.
