Have you had past experiences with efforts by a medical or mental health professional to try to change your sexual orientation or gender identity? You might have heard these practices alternatively referred to as conversion therapy, reparative therapy or sexual orientation change efforts.

CT Equality is a coalition of likeminded organizations fighting for equality and justice for LGBTQ people in Connecticut and we’re looking to hear from you. We’re collecting stories from anyone who has undergone this kind of treatment, been referred to a provider for this treatment, or been told as a parent to take their child for this kind of treatment. We are especially interested in hearing from people who have had these kinds of experiences before turning age 18 or any parents who have had related experiences.

If you’re willing, you can share an overview of your story by using this link. ¬† Someone from CT Equality will follow-up with you to connect and learn more about your experience.
