Royal College of Psychiatrists asked to speak out against gay "cure" therapies

The UK's governing body for psychiatry has been asked to follow the lead of their American counterpart and advise its members not to refer clients who are confused about their sexuality to therapies that claim to change their sexual orientation.

Earlier this year, research found that one in six therapists in Britain had tried to turn gay people straight. The American Psychological Association declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973 and earlier this week it produced a study that concluded homosexuality cannot be cured.

The idea that they should be “converted” to heterosexuality is more of a theological demand than a scientific reality.
