The UK government has just announced that it will exclude trans people from the ban on conversion therapy. This means that thousands of transgender people will not get the same protections as the rest of their community against this dangerous and unethical practice, which can include exorcisms and even physical violence. As a bisexual person myself, this makes me ashamed. 

A government survey in 2017 found that transgender people were twice as likely to have been offered conversion therapy than gay and bisexual individuals, which makes the decision to exclude transgender people from this ban even more troubling.

We continously leave the T out of LGBTQ and that is not okay. 

We are where we are today becuase of the thousands of transgender people who fought alongside us, and now its our turn to do the same. I've been having some heartbreaking conversations with my trans friends who have confided in me that they no longer feel safe. 

We need to make sure that nobody is forced to undergo this horrendous practice. No-body deserves to be subjected to conversion therapy, regardless of their gender or sexuality. Whether you are a part of the communtiy like me or just an ally, we need to stand together, to show that this is not okay. 

Sign my petition to ban conversion therapy completely.
