The UK Government has made a commitment to ban conversion therapy for LGBT+ people and has published detailed proposals for implementing a ban. However, rather than proceeding with legislation as other countries have done, the UK Government has opened a consultation, open to all, seeking views.
There are a number of loopholes in the government’s proposals which would still allow conversion therapy procedures to take place in some circumstances.
It is vitally important that as many LGBT+ people, allies and organisations make their views known. FFLAG supports a complete ban on all forms of conversion “therapy” and will be submitting a response that makes this clear.
The consultation closes on 4th February 2022.
