UK Government thinking about banning gay cure therapies

The Government has indicated that it is now considering banning gay cure therapies outright.

Pink News quotes a government spokesman:

“This Government is absolutely clear that being LGBT is not an illness to be cured, and the practice of conversion therapy is wrong.

“In 2017, we conducted a national survey of LGBT people in the UK, which included questions about whether respondents have been offered or undertaken conversion therapy.

“This will help us investigate what additional steps we could take to end this practice.

“We are currently analysing the responses to the survey, and will be publishing a response later this year.”

MPs could of course support the Private Members Bill and force the government’s hand.
