Senator Megan Hunt introduced a bill to ban “conversion therapies” in Nebraska

Bisexual Senator Megan Hunt introduced a bill to ban “conversion therapies” - their sale and their advertising - in Nebraska.

The opponents claimed this measure would limit religious freedom and expression.

“You can still think whatever you want,” Hunt said. “You just can’t pay a therapist to tell your kids this.”

“I’m a bisexual woman, and I’ve been aware of conversion therapy for a really long time,” she added. “You don’t have to be part of the LGBTQ community to know people that are impacted by this.”

Hunt indicated that she lacked support in the Senate. She would have liked to introduce this law with other senators, but she couldn’t wait, it is time for Nebraska to prohibit this dangerous practice.

A new state could stop to persecute young LGBTQ in this unprecedented effort launched across the United-States.

We hope for a victory, this would mark a great breakthrough in this battle against “conversion cures” because Nebraska is a rather conservative state.
