The New South Wales government says it will bring forward its promised laws banning gay conversion practices, days after a religious lobby group claimed to have helped put the reforms “on pause”. A spokesperson for the premier’s office confirmed the legislation would be introduced to parliament by the end of the year. It was previously expected that the government’s bill would not be introduced until 2024. Last week, the Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) claimed in a newsletter to its supporters that “strong pushback” had put the proposed laws “on ice”. “NSW’s dangerous conversion therapy laws have been put on pause, no doubt influenced by our phone campaign,” ACL chief executive, Michelle Pearse, wrote.
