About Us

Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky is a nonpartisan grassroots movement founded in 2017 by Tanner Mobley and Austin Adam

BCTK’s primary goal is to protect vulnerable minors from harmful attempts to “change” their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression through public education and advocacy, political activity, community building and reciprocal alliances with others across the commonwealth. In spring 2019, BCTK became an official program of The Kentucky Youth Law Project, Inc. (501c3).

OUR VISION

Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky seeks to protect Kentucky’s LGBTQ youth from the harms of conversion therapy.

MISSION STATEMENT

Ban Conversion Therapy Kentucky is a broad-based community effort dedicated to protecting vulnerable minors from harmful attempts to “change” their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression through public education and advocacy, political activity, community building and reciprocal alliances with others across the commonwealth. 

OUR VALUES

Conversion Therapy is Abuse

We believe that conversion therapy is absuse. Not only is it ineffective and dangerous for those who endure it, but it also fuels a narrative that LGBTQ people can and should change who they are.

Safer Community

We believe that banning conversion therapy is an important step to make Kentucky safer for LGBTQ youth.

Grassroots Movement

We believe in non-violent, grassroots organizing that empowers individuals and build a movement that creates lasting changes. 

Together we can make Kentucky a safer place for LGBTQ youth!
