Legislation to ban ‘conversion therapy’ has been announced in Belgium, bringing an end to the cruel practice for all LGBTQ+ people.

The state’s Secretary for Gender Equality, Equal Opportunity and Diversity, Sarah Schlitz, gave more details in a press release. “Belgium is a pioneer in the field of LGBTQ rights,” part of it read. “Numerous legislative reforms and social efforts bear witness to this, but a ban [on conversion practices] was sadly missing from our legislative arsenal.” Belgium is known for having comprehensive legal protections for LGBTQ+ people.

This includes proposed legal recognition of non-binary identities, announced in 2021. Belgium also has the most senior transgender politician in Europe.
