Conversion therapy ban hangs in the balance after Boris Johnson’s resignation, former advisor says

Boris Johnson resigning as prime minister puts the future of the conversion therapy ban up in the air, according to Jayne Ozanne. A conversion therapy ban was first promised by then-prime minister Theresa May in 2018. After her departure from No 10, the can was kicked down the road several times. Johnson ‘s government eventually published a consultation on a ban in October 2021.  But it later emerged, on 31 March, 2022, that the prime minister planned to ditch a legislative ban. After huge backlash, he performed one of the many U-turns that defined his time in office – but made clear his ban would only outlaw conversion therapy on the basis of sexual orientation, and not gender identity.
