The LGBTQ+ community is an incredible tapestry of different sexual orientations and gender identities. Each of them is valid and should be celebrated.

But practices exist which seek to change, cure, or suppress an LGBTQ+ person’s identity. These practices start from the position that a person expressing an LGBTQ+ identity should be challenged, and corrected.

They are deliberately harmful and repressive. Victor Madrigal-Borloz, the UN’s Independent Expert on Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity, has described ‘conversion therapy’ as “inherently discriminatory” and, depending on the severity of the impact on the victim, potentially amounting to torture.

14 countries across the world have some form of national ban on ‘conversion therapy’, including Canada, New Zealand, and Brazil.
