Gay conversion survivor warns unless Tasmania bans it outright, ‘treatment’ could take off


When Chris Csabs was around 12 years old, he overheard a conversation between two men at his church, recalling a time when a gay man came in off the street for prayer. The churchgoers were discussing how “seven homosexual demons came out of that man”. “I overheard that and thought, ‘maybe I’ve got demons in me’,” Mr Csabs said. Around 13 years ago, Mr Csabs went through formal and informal conversion practices in Tasmania, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.
