Demonstration in DC today to end conversion therapy for gender identity
As I returned from a Health Fair in DC and then the Newseum today, I ran into a young woman on the Metro who had marched in a demonstration from Mt Vernon Square to the Justice Department, with signs “End Conversion Therapy Now” and “Justice for Leelah”. This was the case of Josh Acorn (aka Leelah) discussed here Jan. 2.
The DC City Council has banned reparative therapy for minors for sexual orientation with a bill, but I don’t know it this would cover gender identity, too.
