The UK government is re-assessing its policy on the harmful practice of gay cure therapy. Despite evidence that thousands of people are put through the practice, which experts universally agree is damaging, it remains legal in the UK. The Government previously said that it “condemns any attempt to treat being gay, lesbian or bisexual as an illness” but refused to make the practice illegal. Now the Home Office has indicated it is ready to end ‘gay cure’ once and for all following a major national survey into the lives of LGBT Brits.
