Bill to protect LGBTQ youth from conversion therapy passed today!

HOORAY!!!

Today, legislation protecting LGBTQ youth in Maryland from the dangerous and debunked practice of so-called “conversion therapy” was passed by the Maryland House of Delegates with bipartisan support by a vote of 95-27.  The bill, SB1028, was previously approved by the Maryland State Senate.  It now heads to Governor Hogan‘s desk.
