The Future is Straight is a Nordic larp, where we are exploring two days in a gay conversion camp for youth and young adults. We will follow the “rehabbers” as they go through therapy, educational lessons, and maybe tiptoe into a queer community for the first time – struggling to navigate between fully realising themselves, and being accepted as individuals in an oppressive society. The larp is set in a dystopian retro setting in a extreme heteronormative society where queerness is oppressed based on a worldview based in perceptions of science and “nature itself”.


All the player characters at The Future is Straight is young queer people in treatment at a gay conversion therapy facility.
