Last Monday, Massachusetts became the 16th State to prohibit “conversion therapies” to minors.
Indeed, Governor Charlie Baker has signed the bill HB 140 into law to ban “conversion therapies” that you also know as “ex-gay or reparative therapy”.
In New Hampshire, Republican Governor Chris Sununu signed House Bill 1319 into law. Gender identity will be added to the state's non-discrimination law.
It's amazing! New Hampshire Republican Governor Chris Sununu has signed the bill HB 587 into law! This will help protect LGBTQ youth against "conversion therapies" or "ex-gay therapies".
The New Hampshire House of Legislators has approved the conversion therapies ban for LGBT minors.
While legislators in New Hampshire must meet again next January, the Republican state representative Eric Schleien wants to ban therapies to "change" sexual orientation he described as dangerous.
In New Hampshire, the equal marriage has been legal since 2010, the decision of the Supreme Court will have only a very small political impact, but the attitude against the LGBTQ community will be more positive, it is in any case what has been explained by two professors at Dartmouth College in a local newspaper.
In South Carolina, a group of young conservatives tries to convince the Republican party to remove from its platform five key passages against the equal marriage before the party convention in 2016.
A request for clarification on the recognition of the out-of-state same-sex marriages was sent by the New Hampshire's House to the governor Maggie Hassan.
I did not think that would go so quickly but the effort to overturn gay marriage in New Hampshire is over, the House rejected the bill.
Soon, we will know if the law allowing gay marriage in New Hampshire will be or not repealed. Don't worry too much, it could be a happy ending.
