About

You're Going to a Conversion Therapy Camp Tomorrow is a trauma dump comic about a furry who runs away from home after being told by his parents that he has to attend conversion therapy camp. The webcomic was posted to X / Twitter by artist @Fenrirwolfen at the end of June 2024 and went viral shortly after. It inspired memes over the following weeks, including photoshops of an exploitable panel featuring a speech bubble that reads "you're going to conversion therapy camp tomorrow" over the main character's head, which was recaptioned. The comic is similar to other viral trauma dump comics turned into meme formats, including I Might Go Homeless? and Your Favorite Student.

Origin

On June 29th, 2024, X[1] artist @Fenrirwolfen posted a comic titled "You're Going to a Conversion Therapy Camp Tomorrow," garnering over 106,000 likes and 15,000 reposts in two weeks. The comic details a purportedly true story about the artist, a furry with a wolf fursona, who discovers he's gay after watching Brokeback Mountain, decides to come out and is later told he has to attend a conversion therapy camp by his parents. Instead of attending the camp, Fenrirwolfen decides to hold onto his pride and run away from home to live in an apartment on his own (full comic shown below, click to expand).
