Protecting Kentucky’s Kids from Conversion Torture

We’re fighting to protect Kentucky’s kids from dangerous attempts to “change” who they are and who they love.

42% of Conversion Survivors have Attempted or Seriously Considered Suicide in the Past Year.

Not only is it ineffective and dangerous for those who endure it, it also fuels a narrative that LGBTQ people can and should change who they are. Hearing the horror stories from survivors of conversion therapy here in Kentucky, we at Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky feel that passing this legislation is important in giving LGBTQ kids the acceptance and protection they deserve.

Ending Conversion Torture isn't a Partisan Issue.

More than 380 Republican lawmakers across the U.S. have voted in favor of bans on conversion “therapy.”

From Paducah to Covington, Republicans and Democrats are working together to keep our kids safe from conversion torture. The Youth Mental Health Protection Act to protect Kentucky’s youth from these dangerous practices has garnered strong bi-partisan support in both the State House and Senate. With your support, we can put an end to these practices for good in 2021!
