Update, March 24, 2017:
The conversion therapy ban bill, An Act Concerning the Protection of Youth from Conversion Therapy (House Bill 6695), has passed through the Public Health Committee.
GLAD is a member of the CT Equality coalition and is working hard this session to pass a bill that would make it impermissible for licensed health professionals working with minors to engage in so-called conversion therapy.
The term conversion therapy refers to a range of dangerous and discredited practices that seek to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
Contact your legislators and ask them to protect LGBTQ youth in Connecticut from the harmful practice of conversion therapy.
