Google and Amazon fece demands to ban an app promoting ‘gay cure therapy’


An LGBT+ equality group is calling on tech giants Google and Amazon to remove an app that promotes the idea of homosexuality as a ‘disorder’ which can possibly be ‘cured’. The app has already been removed by the AppStore as inappropriate from the point of view of Apple’s Terms and Conditions, so the users of Google Play and Amazon consider it unfair that such an app is still available. LGBT+ organisation Truth Wins Out, which campaigns against anti-gay religious extremism, had thanked Apple for removing the app on their demand (the group had composed a special petition that could gain 356 signatures). , stating that the rivaling companies should do the same thing. “We thank Apple for exemplifying corporate responsibility and taking swift action to remove a dangerous app that stigmatizes and demeans LGBT people,” said Truth Wins Out executive director Wayne Besen in a statement, “Ex-gay programs are consumer fraud and cause significant harm to the people they purport to help. We demand that Google and Amazon immediately stop selling and promoting this app, which dehumanizes LGBT people.”
