Theresa May has called on Boris Johnson to ban trans ‘conversion therapy.’ Over the last few years, LGBTQ+ activists in the UK have urged the government to ban the practice in its entirety. ‘Conversion therapy’ is typically defined as any attempt at changing a person’s sexuality or gender identity, often involving techniques such as electroshock therapy or prayer.
In 2018, the former Prime Minister committed to ridding the country of the harmful method. However, since her departure, Johnson has yet to make significant changes.
Back in April, the government made a U-turn on its decision to ban ‘conversion therapy’ fully, though, after fierce backlash, it made another U-turn and opted just to ban its use on gay people – but not transgender people. “Recognising the complexity of issues and need for further careful thought, we will carry out separate work to consider the issue of transgender conversion therapy further,” it said in a statement on 4 April.
