Take it From the Youth: We Love Who We Are (And You Should Too)
 

Conversion Therapy should NEVER be used for LGBTQ+ youth. Instead, we should aim to make society more accepting of people regardless of their gender or sexuality. Using conversion therapy teaches youth that it is "wrong" to embrace who they are, and it aggressively twists them into society's ideal image of a person. It is not the youth that needs to change; society needs to change in order to accept and love those who are different from people's usual expectations.
