Being lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender is NOT a disease, disorder, illness or shortcoming.

So-called "conversion therapy" is a sham treatment which aims to "cure" subjects of their innate sexual orientation or gender identity.

The practice of "conversion therapy" is actually not a clinically tested medical therapy at all. It's been tragically shown to lead to mental illness, drug use, homelessness, self-harm and suicide -- especially in kids and teens.

Let's send a clear message to the LGBTQ youth of Florida: you’re wanted and welcomed here.

The American Psychological Association, American Psychiatric Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Association of Social Workers and numerous other professional and medical organizations have come out in opposition to “conversion therapy” and have warned of the harm that it does to minors.

It's time for our state to join the cities of Miami Beach, Miami, Wilton Manors, North Bay Village, and numerous other jurisdictions in moving to outlaw so-called conversion "therapy."

    Conversion “therapy” is not therapy, it is abuse. Sexual orientation is not an illness or a choice. There are no valid medical/scientific studies that demonstrate its efficacy, and denying or demonizing something as basic as one’s sexuality can lead to depression and suicide. This barbaric practice should be illegal.

    “Conversion Therapy” DOES NOT work & is psychologically abusive. I stand with the inclusive-minded people of Miami, Miami Beach, Wilton Manors, North Bay Village and all the other jurisdictions who accept the LGBTQ community JUST As it is!!

    We are a melting pot of people in this country with different cultures, religions, sexual orientation, gender and so on. Can’t we just let people who do no harm to others just live their lives in peace? This conversion therapy nonsense is just another sign of how far backwards King Trump and his Republican cronies are taking America. It has to stop and it has to stop NOW!
