Greece banned so-called ‘conversion therapy’ for minors as part of a wider effort to improve the lives of LGBTQ+ people in the country.

The bill, which has been approved by Greece’s parliament, states that those caught illegally performing ‘conversion therapy’ could face fines and time in prison.

Speaking to parliament last week, Thanos Plevris, the country’s Health Minister, said: “There were some false treatments that stated that when a minor has chosen a different sexual orientation, his parents could supposedly proceed with ‘treatments’ for this child to ‘return to normality’.” “Obviously these treatments not only are not a therapy but they are not supported scientifically,” he added.
