Ep 32: Nick Duffy on 'conversion therapy'

Posted: Thu, 20 Aug 2020

Title of episode on LGBT flag with podcast logo and Nick Twitter image

In this episode, Emma Park speaks to Nick Duffy, current affairs editor at Pink News, about so-called 'conversion therapy', the type of psychological practices that it can involve, and the harm it can cause to those who undergo it.

They consider the case for banning it altogether along with the difficulties of defining it, and the response of other countries where it is a problem, such as the US and Canada.

Emma is then joined by Megan Manson, head of policy & research at the NSS, to discuss what the society has been doing to oppose the practice of 'conversion therapy', and how faith schools that preach against LGBT identities are implicitly supporting it.
