Join us in the fight to ban conversion therapy.
It's still legal for LGBTQIA+ people in the UK to be subjected to conversion therapy. This harmful practice, which seeks to suppress, “cure” or change a person’s people's sexual orientation and/or gender identity, is taking place right now.
We know that 7% of LGBTQIA+ people have been offered or undergone conversion therapy. People are targeted in medical, psychiatric, psychological, religious and cultural settings. These are places everyone should feel safe.
The UK Government has now published a consultation to find out what people think about this harmful practice. This is our chance to make sure the ban protects every LGBTQIA+ person from abuse.
Read our guidance for responding to the consultation, attend our webinar to learn more about filling in the consultation, and sign up today to receive updates.
