France’s parliament has voted to ban so-called conversion therapy, joining a handful of countries that have taken steps to outlaw practices that seek to change a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Under the French legislation, people offering LGBTIQ+ conversion therapy could be jailed for up to two years and fined 30,000 euros ($47,500 AUD), with even tougher sentences if under-18s or vulnerable adults were involved. The bill, which must be signed by French President Emmanuel Macron before becoming law, was passed days after a similar ban was signed into law in Canada. Brazil, Ecuador, Malta, Albania and Germany have also passed legislation that either partially or fully outlaws the practice, which has been condemned by medical professionals.
