Calls for NZ to ban gay conversion therapies

From Morning Report, 7:41 am on 10 July 2018

The pressure is on the Government to follow Britain's lead and ban gay conversion therapies. Theresa May's Conservative government is planning to outlaw the controversial practice, as part of a 75-point plan to improve the lives of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. Gay conversion therapies are outlawed in a number of other countries, and advocates for the rainbow community here say New Zealand needs to catch up. Our social issues reporter Sarah Robson has the story.
