Fourteen states have banned conversion therapy for young people -- dangerous religion-based procedures which try to change someone's sexual orientation or gender identity. "Ex-gay therapy" has been linked to suicide, depression, isolation and anxiety, and has been condemned by nearly every medical and psychological body as dangerous, destructive and something no person should be forced to undergo.

And yet in 36 states -- including states like New York, Maine, Ohio, and Virginia -- "ex-gay therapy" remains a practice that's largely legal under the law. But there is national momentum as more and more states move to ban "ex-gay therapy" and protect minors from attempts to "cure" them of their sexual orientation.

Fourteen states banning this false therapy is far from enough. LGBTQ+ kids are still facing dangerous "ex-gay therapy" attempts in more than 30 states around the country. 

All these states have seen numerous petitions and movements to outlaw conversion therapy. Numerous marches and rallies occur yearly to work towards furthering the rights of the LGBTQ+ community, yet these procedures are still a prevalent threat and fear for the young LGBTQ+ community. A medical process involving religious fervor and painful procedures has no place in today's America.

Let's build on this national organizing momentum, and work to nationally end conversion therapy. With your support, no child will have to fear the potential of having their identity violently ripped from them.
