Seattle Bans Gay Conversion Therapy


Recommended Posts


Five State, the District of Columbia, Miami & Cincinnati also have banned this horrific practice.  

It makes me sad that we have to declare and ban this disgusting practice.  


Seattle City Councilmember Debora Juarez, a member of the Blackfeet Nation, gave an emotional testimony upon the ordinance’s passage, The Stranger reports. She compared the therapy to the plight faced by Native Americans in the early days of the country.

“Conversion therapy is the 20th century or 21st century version of what happened to my people all in the name in assimilation,” she said. “We were forcibly taken from our families, from our children. I am literally one generation removed from that practice.”

“It breaks my heart that we have to pass a law to recognize your humanity,” she added.
