Stonewall supports commitment to end trans conversion therapy

  • Memorandum of Understanding against trans ‘conversion therapy’ launched today 

  • 13 health organisations including the UK Council for Psychotherapy, the Royal College of GPs, the British Psychoanalytical Society and Pink Therapy say such practices are unethical

  • Stonewall CEO Ruth Hunt welcomes move, saying trans identities are 'not something to be ‘cured’ or changed'

Trans people seeking support need to be accepted for who they are, not subjected to prejudice and harmful practice. 

Ruth Hunt, Chief Executive of Stonewall, said: 'Trans identities are not something to be ‘cured’ or changed. Stonewall is today delighted to join counselling and psychotherapy bodies across Britain to support a Memorandum of Understanding, which makes clear that any attempt to change a person’s gender identity through therapy is unethical. Trans people seeking support need to be accepted for who they are, not subjected to prejudice and harmful practice.'
