Denver’s Mayor Is Giving LGBTQ Conversion Therapy The Middle Finger

HuffPost

Denver is the latest city to actually propose a ban on conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth and minors. 

Mayor Michael B. Hancock just introduced the proposal in Monday which is still under review. Once passed, the ban would be the first anti-conversion therapy legislation to pass in Colorado.

According to Hancock:

“These terrible practices that target our youth, simply for being who they are, are dangerous and immoral. We’re going to make sure that they never happen within our city. “

Hancock’s disdain for LGBTQ cruelty is inextricably linked to his brother coming out to his family. He recalls how he was met with love and support, which is fueling his mission.

“All our LGBTQ+ youth here in Denver deserve the same, and they should be proud of who they are. We celebrate who they are and they should feel welcome and that our city is open to them. Their safety, well being and happiness are our highest priority with this proposal.”

So far, fourteen states including Washington, D.C., have banned conversion therapy for LGBTQ youth. Fingers crossed, the entire world will see the beauty in us. And if not, let’s make them!
