Gay ‘cure’ group faces consumer fraud complaint from rights coalition

One of the leading ‘gay cure’ groups in the US is facing a federal fraud complaint from a gay rights coalition.

The Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) have joined together to make the case against People Can Change.

According to HRC, the Virginia-based group People Can Change “preys on vulnerable LGBT people and families by using damaging and discredited claims that it can change an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity”.

PCC says it provides services to people who are “seeking to overcome homosexual desires”, with desperate people and families forking over as much as $650 per ‘workshop’ in a bid to cure homosexuality.

  1. As I’m sure you know, Terry, every reputable psychiatric and psychological professional body has condemned this malpractice long since. Interesting that “conversion therapy” continues, but as a consumer choice, as business, trade, not health care, so avoiding ethical issues, peer review, any requirement to assess efficacy, etc, etc. Lord have mercy..
