End conversion therapy for minors in NSW

This petition had 138 supporters

Currently, the use of forced conversion therapy on LGBT+ minors is legal throughout Australia. This is incredibly harmful to the LGBT+ community; not only has conversion therapy been soundly proven to not work, it is outright damaging, perpetuating the myth that LGBT+ people are inherently unnatural, and can have severe impacts on their mental health: research has found that LGBT+ people who have been rejected by their parents are nearly eight times more likely to commit suicide.

By signing this petition, you can help bring an end to this archaic and damaging practise in NSW, making it the first state in Australia to do so
