Boris Johnson’s government is set to ban gay ‘conversion therapy’ after all, though his plans reportedly do not cover practices aimed at trans people.
On 31 March, a leaked document seen by ITV News confirmed that the UK government was no longer planning to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy’ despite promising to do so since 2018.
However, mere hours after the news broke, the government made a U-turn on its decision in the wake of public outcry because of it – including from fellow Conservative politicians. “The Prime Minister has changed his mind off the back of the reaction to our report and he WILL now ban conversion therapy after all,” said Paul Brand of ITV News, the journalist who broke the story. “Senior Govt source absolutely assures me it’ll be in Queen’s Speech. “But only gay conversion therapy, not trans.” Although details remain somewhat scarce at this time, it has been reported that pressure from government officials is what made the tide turn on Boris Johnson’s decision.
