What is conversion therapy?

Conversion therapy is the pseudoscientific practice of trying to change an individual’s sexual orientation from homosexual or bisexual to heterosexual using psychological or spiritual interventions. There is no reliable evidence that sexual orientation can be changed and medical institutions warn that conversion therapy practices are ineffective, harmful, and has caused some LGBTQ people to commit suicide.

What does LGBTQ stand for?

LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer, or Questioning. Sometimes it appears only as LGBT or GLBT, and sometimes as LGBTQIA, with the “I” for Intersex and the “A” for Asexual.
