Virginia bans conversion therapy for LGBTQ children

Recommended Posts




Governor Ralph Northam has signed legislation that would ban gay conversion therapy on minors in Virginia.


Conversion therapy, which has been discredited as a practice by multiple major medical associations, attempts to forcibly change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity through intensive counseling.

Great news! Now we just need a federal ban.


Conversion therapy is emotional abuse, and in some cases physical abuse as well. Forcing a minor to undergo that is child. I’ve talked to a couple of people who’ve undergone it, one was forced as a child. Their stories are heartbreaking.
