Ban Conversion Therapy
Write to your MP and demand that conversation therapy is banned today
THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION REMOVED HOMOSEXUALITY FROM THE INTERNATIONAL CLASSIFICATION OF DISEASES IN 1990.
31 YEARS LATER, ATTEMPTS TO ‘CURE’ US ARE STILL HAPPENING — AND STILL LEGAL.
Conversion therapy includes medical, psychiatric, psychological, religious, cultural or any other interventions that seek to erase, repress or change the sexual orientation and/or gender identity of a person. Figures from the National LGBT Survey found that:
7 PER CENT OF LGBT+ PEOPLE HAVE BEEN OFFERED OR UNDERGONE CONVERSION THERAPY, WITH TRANS RESPONDENTS ALMOST TWICE AS LIKELY TO HAVE UNDERGONE OR BEEN OFFERED CONVERSION THERAPY (13 PER CENT). FIGURES ALSO FOUND ASEXUAL PEOPLE TO BE AT A HIGHER RISK OF BEING OFFERED OR UNDERGOING CONVERSION THERAPY (10 PER CENT).
It’s time for conversion therapy to be eradicated. We have an opportunity to secure a full, legislative ban which makes conversion therapy illegal:
Wherever it occurs – in public or private, through healthcare or religious and cultural interventions
Whoever is targeted – whether a child or an adult, whether they are coerced or have consented
From the moment it’s spotted – through advertising on and offline
WE ARE CALLING FOR THE UK GOVERNMENT TO
BAN CONVERSION THERAPY IN ALL ITS FORMS.
