So-called “conversion therapy" is a dangerous and discredited practice aimed at changing sexual orientation or gender identity. These dangerous and discredited practices are based on the false claim that being lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, or queer (LGBTQ) is a mental illness that needs to be cured—a view with no scientific basis.
These harmful practices use rejection, shame, and psychological abuse to force young people to try and change who they are.
