The Connecticut House of Representatives voted 141-8 to ban conversion therapy for youths under 18 years of age. The Senate followed rapidly with a 36-0 vote in favor of the ban, and the bill was almost immediately signed by the governor. We applaud this decisive action by the House and Senate to expeditiously pass this bill. Conversion therapy is the practice or trying to change gay or lesbian sexual orientation to a heterosexual orientation and is also the practice of trying to stop transgender youth from transitioning to their own gender identity. We join the major counseling and psychiatric associations in opposing conversion therapy and applaud the Connecticut Legislature and governor for decisively banning this practice.
