The Victorian Greens have welcomed the state's inquiry into gay conversion therapy, just two months after the party announced it would establish a parliamentary inquiry.

“The Greens have long called for an inquiry into gay conversion therapy and recently announced we would establish a parliamentary inquiry in response to the ongoing evidence this insidious practice is still occurring in Victoria”

“The inquiry must give survivors of gay conversion therapy a chance to tell their story.

“It also needs to look more broadly at the ‘ex-gay movement’ and shine a light on the dark recesses of religious organisation where this insidious practice is still occurring.”
