Enact Leelah’s Law to Ban All LGBTQ+ Conversion Therapy

By Junior Mayema

I am keeping this petition on my radars and loop, until we get a positive feedback from the White House to stop conversion therapy  nationwide , imagine in a situation like this when facebook even allows hate groups to mock the brutal death of the beautiful trans girl and allows that very hate groups to continue attacking other trans people who are still alive and trying to survive, i have never said this before but think somewhere, somehow some of the facebook teams, are homophobic  and transphobic, this is not the first time for a backlash between facebook and the trans and gender non-conforming community , they are Co-conspirators of Leelah’s brutal death ARREST THEM

WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:

Enact Leelah’s Law to Ban All LGBTQ+ Conversion Therapy

On Sunday, December 27, 2014, Leelah Alcorn a 17 year old transgender youth wrote a suicide note, posted it on Tumblr and then walked in front of a semi-truck tragically ending her life. Leelah explained how her parents had forced her to attend conversion therapy, pulled her out of school and isolated her in an attempt to change her gender identity. ‘Conversion therapies’ have been documented to cause great harms and in this case, Leelah’s death. Therapists that engage in the attempt to brainwash or reverse any child’s gender identity or sexual orientation are seriously unethical and legislation is needed to end such practices that are resulting in LGBTQ+ deaths. We respectfully seek your help to ban the practice known as ‘conversion therapy’ and name the bill in honor of Leelah Alcorn.
