The city-wide ban in Denver, Colorado, is the latest in a wave of bills across the US seeking to tackle the so-called conversion therapy practices that proclaim themselves as being able to change people’s sexuality and gender identity, but only harm them physically and mentally. Denver City Council members unanimously voted for a city-wide ban on conversion therapy for minors on January 7. This proposal is aimed at state-licensed therapists operating in the city, who Mayor of Denver Michael B. Hancock accused of misleading the parents of LGBT youth and infusing into their minds that their children are mentally ill. “Tonight’s vote to ban conversion therapy is a great example of our city coming together and saying with one voice that we will never allow our LGBTQ+ youth to be the targets of these dubious practices, and that we are here to support them,” the Mayor said announcing the ban.
