SOGIECE refers to a broad set of treatments, practices, or sustained efforts that aim to repress, discourage, or change a person’s sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. Conversion therapy and reparative therapy fall into this definition. Sharing survivor stories is an important element of letting others know they are not alone. This also humanizes the issue for those who don’t understand what it is like, that it is still happening or are confused by opposition to a conversion therapy ban.

If you have been impacted by conversion efforts and would like to share your story please complete this form.
