NHYD Statement on Senate Vote to
Ban Conversion Therapy in New Hampshire

 

CONCORD – Today, after the Senate voted to pass SB 224 , which prohibits the practice of conversion therapy relative to sexual orientation for children younger than 18 years old, Nashua resident and UNH Manchester student Brenna Connolly released the following statement:

“As a young LGBTQ Granite Stater, it is unconscionable that it would be legal in this state for a child to be told that they are not equal, not worthy, or that they are somehow not normal. Conversion therapy is a dangerous, discredited practice and is nothing more than sanctioned discrimination that does incredible physical and mental harm to LGBTQ children.” 

“While we are thankful that the Senate passed SB 224 today, we are calling on Governor Sununu to vocally support this bill and commit to signing it if it reaches his desk. Given the fact he nominated someone who has defended conversion therapy to be our new Education Commissioner, it is Governor Sununu's responsibility to stand up and let all LGBTQ children know that he will protect them from dangerous practices like conversion therapy. Anything short will be unacceptable to our state's proud tradition of advancing LGBTQ rights."
