Councilmember González discusses ordinance prohibiting gay conversion therapy

Councilmember Lorena González (Citywide) discusses an ordinance to prohibit conversion therapy for minors in Seattle ahead of the Council committee consideration. The legislation would add a new chapter to the City's existing human rights code and would prohibit licensed mental health providers from practicing conversion therapy on minor children by making it a civil violation penalized by a fee of up to $1,000. Conversion therapy is a widely discredited practice that claims to use therapeutic tools to "cure" people of their same-sex attractions or non-conforming gender identity.
