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".

New Hampshire joins a growing list of states and municipalities to have adopted such measures. These states are Connecticut, California, Nevada, New Jersey, District of Columbia, Oregon, Illinois, Vermont, New York, New Mexico, Rhode Island, Washington, Maryland, and Hawaii, to which is added New Hampshire.

Many cities and counties in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, Florida, New York, Arizona, and Wisconsin have also approved a similar legislation.

This year alone, four states have adopted a "conversion therapy" ban for LGBTQ youth like Hawaii and Maryland! And it may not be over for this year.
