Democratic and Republican lawmakers in Utah are set to introduce a bill that would ban so-called “conversion therapy” practices in the state for good, and the news couldn’t come at a more important moment.
A recent study found that one in five LGBTQ youth attempted suicide after surviving these horrific, medically outdated practices. So the facts are clear: “conversion therapy” or “ex-gay therapy” practices only harm LGBTQ youth.
Utah’s elected leaders cannot let this deadly practice continue, and the Church of Latter-Day Saints declared it would not stand in the way of this bipartisan effort at the state house.
We need your help to get us there. Add your name to this petition and call on Utah’s elected leaders to protect our LGBTQ youth once and for all.
