It’s been nearly five years since the UK Government first promised to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy’. Yet today, more than 1.5 million LGBTQ+ people in England and Wales remain at risk of these harmful attempts to ‘cure’ us. That's why we've launched a new short film alongside 21* other LGBTQ+ organisations, based on the real experiences of conversion therapy survivors.
Conversion therapy doesn’t work. Survivors can suffer from lifelong damage and suffering. It is abuse, pure and simple. And it has to stop. The UK Government recently moved to put a legislative ban back on the table. But after years of U-turns and broken promises, it's vital that the UK Government does not delay any further, and publishes a draft Bill and timetable for legislation as soon as possible. The suffering of our communities must end now.
