Britain to Ban Gay Conversion Therapy — Calls it 'Abhorrent Practice'

07-03-2018
Vowing to "eradicate the abhorrent practice," the British government says it will ban gay conversion therapy. It's part of a  $6 million (4.5 million BGP) initiative to make British society more "inclusive" for LGBT people.
 
The government also released the results of a survey of 108,000 LGBT people, which found that 5 percent had been offered conversion therapies.
 
The survey also found that LGBT people said they experience prejudice daily, with more than two in three saying they avoid holding hands with a same-sex partner in public for fear of a negative reaction.
 
Prime Minister Theresa May said, "no one should ever have to hide who they are or who they love."
 
The government's 75 point plan includes the appointment of a national LGBT health adviser to improve care for the community.
