In 2018, the UK Government pledged to stamp out "gay cures". But since then, they have only dithered and found excuses for loopholes. Sign to demand proper action to end the abuse!
UPDATE - NOVEMBER 2021
"Conversion therapy" or "gay cures" is the attempt to change someone's sexual orientation or gender identity. The practice has been described by professional bodies around the world as extremely harmful and even as torture. It often results in depression, drug addiction and suicide. Thousands of LGBT+ people in the UK are still subject to it each year.
The Conservative Government’s July 2018 LGBT+ Action Plan promised to end conversion therapy as a priority, with ministers at the time describing “gay cures” as “abuse of the worst kind”.
But now the Government has launched a public consultation, recommending that "consenting" adults SHOULD be able to undergo conversion therapy.
It should never be legally possible to consent to abuse. Religious "conversion practices" can cause deep and lasting trauma and must be banned completely.
Add your voice to close this loophole and ensure that the "conversion therapy" ban in the UK actually provides protection to LGBT+ people who need it!
