Monique March started this petition to NSW Premier

A bill has just been passed in Victoria to end conversion therapy and we need similar legislation in NSW and throughout Australia and the world. 
Please see below information from ABC news re the recent change in Victoria legislation-

Key points:
The bill makes it illegal to try and change or suppress a person's gender identity or sexual orientation.
Harriet Shing, the only openly gay MP in the Upper House made an emotional speech in favour of the bill.
Liberal Bernie Finn said the bill was an attack on basic freedoms and freedom of choice.
The bill passed without amendments at around 10:30pm on Thursday night, 27 votes to nine.

The Change or Suppression (Conversion) Practises Prohibition Bill makes it illegal to try and change or suppress a person's sexual orientation or gender identity in Victoria.

It also gives power to Victoria's Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission to investigate and refer matters to police.

The law includes prison terms of up to 10 years or hefty fines for anyone caught trying to suppress or change someone's sexuality by conducting suppression practices.

Congratulations to Victoria on this long overdue legislation. Now we need all to follow so please help by signing the petition and contacting and forwarding on to as many people as possible.

Thank you
