Victoria is set to become the first state in Australia to introduce a ban on conversion therapy. Daniel Andrews, Premier of Victoria (head of government) made the announcement at Midsumma Pride in St Kilda today. In a statement posted to his website, Andrews’ office explained that his government “will bring in laws to denounce and prohibit LGBTI conversion practices, ending the bigoted practice that has caused so much trauma to too many Victorians.” Andrews – who has held the post since 2014 and is a member of the Labour Party – intends to introduce the ban after an extensive investigation was completed by the Health Complaints Commissioner (HCC).
