It’s been nearly five years since the UK Government first promised to ban so-called ‘conversion therapy’. Yet today, more than 1.5 million LGBTQ+ people in England and Wales remain at risk of these harmful attempts to ‘cure’ them.
Directing duo Zhang + Knight created this short film with Stonewall and 21 other LGBTQ+ organizations, based on the real experiences of conversion therapy survivors. The short was produced by Academy Films with ad agency The&Partnership.
The UK Government recently moved to put a legislative ban back on the table. But after years of U-turns and broken promises, it’s vital that the UK Government does not delay any further, and publishes a draft Bill and timetable for legislation as soon as possible.
