Statement: Exclusion of trans people from the conversion therapy ban

Monday, April 4, 2022

We have signed a joint statement alongside over 100 LGBT+ and HIV organisations:

The Government’s decision to exclude trans people from the ban on conversion therapy is completely unacceptable. Trans rights are human rights – progress without or at the expense of trans people is not progress. We stand together and will not be divided.
As HIV charities and community groups we stand in solidarity with Stonewall and the whole LGBT+ sector and will not be supporting or attending the upcoming global LGBT+ 'Safe To Be Me' conference unless the Government reverts to their promise of a trans-inclusive ban.
