SYDNEY, NSW — (03-22-24) — LGBTQ groups are celebrating legislation passed after a marathon of overnight debate. The ban on conversion practices was one of the Labor party’s election promises, and it was welcomed by equality groups not only domestically but worldwide.

The upper house debated the issue in a marathon session overnight before it was finally passed after 6am. Sydney MP Alex Greenwich said the right balance had been found for the conversion legislation to pass. “The sun rises today on a state that is safer for LGBTQ people,” said Greenwich. “LGBTQ people are loved and beautiful, and futile attempts to change or suppress who we are will now be illegal in NSW.” said Greenwich.

New South Wales joins Argentina, Brazil, Chili, Ecuador, Fiji, Germany, Malta, Samoa, Taiwan and 20 states and two territories, counties or municipalities in the United States in banning the dark age practice.
