Conversion therapy ban in Greater Mcr proposed
GM LGBTQ+ EQUALITY PANEL LAUNCHES TODAY WITH A COMMITMENT TO END CONVERSION THERAPY ACROSS GREATER MANCHESTER FOR ALL LGBTQ+ PEOPLE
The Greater Manchester LGBTQ+ Equality Panel officially launches today on the International Day against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia, with a promise to make the region better and safer for all LGBTQ+ communities by committing to free the city-region of so-called “conversion therapy”.
“Conversion therapy” is a practice where an individual or organisation seeks an intervention with a predetermined outcome to change, cure or suppress the sexual orientation or gender identity of a person. This powerful commitment to end this practice has been made on behalf of Greater Manchester Combined Authority and supported by many Greater Manchester-based organisations, local authorities and charities.
