Almost 700,000 LGBTQ Adults Have Undergone Conversion Therapy

Almost 700,000 LGBTQ Adults Have Undergone Conversion Therapy In The U.S., According To A New Report

“Conversion therapy, a nonscientific treatment used to change people’s sexual orientation, has been denounced by medical and mental health organizationsbecause it causes harm to people who undergo it, perpetuates negative stereotypes about being LGBTQ, and, of course, isn’t effective. Conversion therapy operates under the incorrect assumption that being LGBTQ is something that needs to be “changed” or “cured,” and puts LGBTQ folks in danger. But despite being banned in nine states and Washington, D.C., a new report found that almost 700,000 LGBTQ adults have undergone conversion therapy at some point in their lives.”
