Stop All Conversion Therapies

We oppose the harm caused by the ongoing practice of so-called conversion therapy brings to LGBT+ people. We call on the Minister for Equalities to ensure that any ban on conversion therapy is fully trans-inclusive, protecting all LGBT+ people from this cruel practice, not just gay and lesbian as is currently proposed (and well overdue having being proposed years ago).

What is Conversion Therapy? 

According to the British Psychological Society (BPS), conversion therapy - sometimes called "reparative therapy" or "gay cure therapy" - tries to change someone's sexual orientation or gender identity.

In practice, it means trying to stop or suppress someone from being gay, or from living as a different gender to their sex recorded at birth.

It can include talking therapies and prayer, but more extreme forms can include exorcism, physical violence and food deprivation.
