Born Perfect Presents “Bobby’s Big Problem”

Born Perfect Presents “Bobby’s Big Problem”

At NCLR, we have been fighting to end the dangerous and discredited practice of conversion therapy even before we launched our Born Perfect campaign in 2014.

This short film includes an all-star cast including Patton Oswalt, D’Arcy...

In appreciation: Rich Weissman and JD Horn

In appreciation: Rich Weissman and JD Horn

Rich Weissman and JD Horn first fell in love with NCLR in 2017, immediately impressed by the breadth and scope of the work and the sheer determination to create change. They have been serious NCLR fans ever since, hosting NCLR in their home in Palm Springs and providing meaningful financial support. When asked “why NCLR?” they are quick with a response. First, NCLR gets things done. They do not talk about what steps need to be taken to move our community forward; they take the steps and make...
