This Monday, September 25th, the Westminster City Council will issue a proclamation opposing the harmful and discredited practice of conversion therapy on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer young people in Colorado.
We hope you can join LGBTQ Coloradans and allies at Monday night’s city council meeting to show your support for the proclamation.
Those who practice conversion therapy falsely claim they can change someone’s sexual orientation or gender identity. All the nation’s leading medical and mental health organizations have come out against these practices — which include the use of shame, verbal abuse, and even aversion techniques like electric shocks — saying they pose serious health risks, including depression, guilt, helplessness, hopelessness, social withdrawal, and even suicide.
Please join us at Monday’s Westminster City Council meeting!
