Ban Conversion Therapy

Conversion therapy is based on the principle that being LGBTQ+ is a disease and/or fixable, which it is not. Instead of forcing a dangerous practice that has no scientific basis on the community, provide resources and community support to help individuals in the LGBTQ+ succeed and feel safe. Provide resources for families, friends, schools, employers, places of religious practice, etc. educational tools to better understand the community, not change or “convert” it.
