Nearly one in five LGBTQ+ people have experienced so-called ‘conversion’ practices in the UK, a new study from Galop, the UK’s leading anti-abuse charity for LGBTQ+ people, has found.
Trans and non-binary people were subjected to it at higher rates than other members of the LGBTQ+ community, with 43% reported to have experienced it. ‘Conversion’ practices are typically defined as any attempt at changing or suppressing a person’s sexuality or gender identity, often involving techniques such as electroshock therapy or prayer.
It has been widely condemned by health experts and bodies all over the world, including the National Health Service and the World Health Organisation, with some comparing it to torture.
