We are so very close to protecting LGBTQ youth in Maryland! Today, the Maryland House of Delegates joined the Senate in passing critical legislation to protect LGBTQ youth from the dangerous and discredited practice of so-called “conversion therapy.” This is a huge victory, and the bill is now heading to Governor Larry Hogan’s desk for his signature.
This legislation would not have been possible without the leadership of key sponsors in both chambers including Senator Rich Madaleno and Delegate Bonnie Cullison. During the 2018 legislative session, HRC has been proud to work alongside our partners at Free State Justice and WISE as we pushed to advance this critical legislation in the State of Maryland.
Governor Hogan has signaled that he would support this legislation but he needs to hear from Maryland residents that this bill is a priority to supporters of equality. Send a message to Governor Hogan today and ask him to protect LGBTQ youth from this harmful practice.
