Mattachine Event Highlights “Conversion Therapy”


Lisa Linsky, commenting at an event sponsored by Firm pro bono client The Mattachine Society to highlight discrimination against LGBT persons by so-called conversion therapy, pledged efforts “to hunt down historic documents pertaining to the country’s practice of gay conversion therapy. We’re going to expose those documents and those stories in an effort to combat proposed [‘religious freedom’] legislation and laws so that we can have a voice in challenging those laws,” which often support conversion therapy.
