Convertion therapy is harmful and inhumane.


This guidance will protect youth from so-called “conversion therapy,” a dangerous and discredited practice aimed at changing their sexual orientation or gender identity. These dangerous and discredited practices are based on the false claim that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) is a mental illness that needs to be cured—a view with no scientific basis.

I urge you to protect our kids from dangerous methods such as this. To be LGBTQ is not some sort of disease, it’s who people are.
