The Canadian government is considering banning LGBTQ conversion therapy. The practice has been banned in Germany, Brazil, and Albania. And last week, France’s Senate voted to criminalize it. In both countries, the government cites serious health concerns surrounding the practice. This could make it harder for a person to come out as a gay person, but the bill’s success is important.

The ban was first introduced in the Senate, but the House of Commons unanimously passed the bill, which now goes to the senate for a separate vote. Many people believe this is a victory for LGBTQ2 rights in Canada. However, there are still many people who believe that more legislation needs to be done to protect victims of such practices. The law will prohibit the use of such methods, but it will likely require the government to enact a more stringent criminal code.

The new law will also help queer and transgender Canadians access care and treatment. The province is not the first to take such a step. In fact, it is the first province in Canada to ban the practice. And it has been banned for several years in Australia, and the United States. But the United States has done more than any other country in the world to protect LGBTQ2 people.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the practice “despicable and degrading.”
