Oprah’s OWN will air a report next week showing survivors of Exodus International, the infamous “ex-gay” group, confronting its president, Alan Chambers.

“In a special episode, Lisa Ling is joined by a group of survivors of the condemned and damaging practice of ‘reparative therapy’ as they confront Alan Chambers,” the show’s website notes:

Chambers recently asked Ling to help orchestrate an opportunity in which he could formally apologize to those who felt deceived and defrauded by Exodus’ practices and to announce that the organization will cease to be an “ex gay” organization.

For almost 40 years, Exodus International claimed to offer a “cure” for homosexuality. Alan Chambers, the leader of Exodus, decided last year to stop endorsing the controversial practice of gay-reparative therapy. And now, he has a new message: an apology.

Here’s a preview video:
