Every one of us deserves to be respected for who we are.
But practices that seek to change or suppress a person’s sexuality or gender identity cause real and lasting harm, whether they occur in religious or health settings.
They’re based on the lie that LGBTQA+ people are broken or disordered and that our sexuality or gender identity needs to be ‘healed’, ‘treated’ or ‘suppressed’.
The ACT, VIC and QLD put a stop to these damaging practices. Now we need the rest of Australia to catch up by calling leaders in laggard states to develop laws that:
- Protect all LGBTQA+ people;
- Apply to any setting, including religious settings; and
- Prevent harm before it occurs, by including a civil response that focuses on education.
Will you sign our petition calling on NSW to put a stop to conversion practices?
We need your support to put a stop to conversion practices across Australia.
