A debate on gay conversion therapy is being held in a Parliamentary committee room tomorrow.
Entitled “Sexual reorientation therapy: Freedom to change?”, the event has been organised by two right-wing Christian organisations: Christian Concern and Core Issues (“God’s heart in sexual and relational brokenness”).
Speakers include Core Issues director and “ex-gay” campaigner Dr Mike Davidson (who was stripped of his professional credentials in 2012) and Dr Joseph Berger, a consultant psychiatrist from Canada who denies the existence of trans people and advocates child abuse.
