Why this petition matters

Started by All Gay Long

The methods of conversion therapy are beyond cruel and frequently violent. From applying electric shocks while being forced to watch gay porn, to mind control games aimed at persuading LGBT “patients” that their desires are rooted in dysfunction, to “disempowering” relationships with their mothers. This along with weeks, months and even year long programs which once you're in them, make you feel as though it is near impossible to get out of because of the control and brainwashing involved.

More than 200 therapists still engage in trying to cure people of their homosexuality. The full extent of the problem is that most organisations that practice conversion therapy do so in relative secrecy, often in closed-off religious communities.

Conversion therapy is still happening all around Britain and Northern Ireland today.

It is proven not to work and its causing beautiful and wonderful LGBTQ+ adults and youths to lose their lives and leaving many of them mentally scarred. This needs to end now. 

Britain and Ireland have drawn up bills to outlaw conversion therapy but they have yet to be put in place as of 2020 saying it is "complex issue". We think this is just not good enough.

All major counselling and psychotherapy bodies, as well as the NHS, have concluded that the practice is dangerous and have condemned it by signing a Memorandum of Understanding.

Help us and sign this petition to get the government to REALLY notice this problem and to do something about it.

We are supposed to be a country of free speech and equality. 

Join the cause and support our rights! 
Thank you.
