We are survivors of conversion practices. LGBTQA+ Australians like us are at risk of these harmful practices, which tell them they're 'sick' and 'broken.' 

The conversion practices movement make pseudoscientific claims which tell LGBTQA+ people they can change their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Research and the testimonies of survivors have revealed that 10% of LGBTQA+ Australians are at risk of conversion practices, and that such practices are prevalent across Australia. 

But successive Australian state and territory governments have failed to legislate to adequately address and ban these practices.

Together, we can pressure Australian governments to work with survivors groups, such as SOGICE Survivors and Brave Network, to draft effective legislation to combat conversion practices.

Stand with us and with the LGBTQA+ community and call on Australian governments to protect LGBTQA+ people from conversion practices.

Amnesty International has signed onto the Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Change Efforts (SOGICE) Survivor Statement calling on the Australian Government to end conversion practices, by signing this petition you are also endorsing the SOGICE Survivor Statement.
