Protecting Our Black & Brown LGBTQ+ Youth: Dismantling Conversion Therapy

The Born Brown community celebrates our differences and fights for social justice for ALL. That includes protecting our LGBTQ+ siblings, especially our Black, Indigenous, and PoC youth, who are disproportionately impacted by a harmful practice called conversion therapy.

What is conversion therapy? 

It is trying to force someone to change their sexual orientation or gender identity. It is messed up, right? Major medical and mental health organizations agree – this stuff is dangerous and can lead to depression, anxiety, and even suicide. 

Why are we talking about this? 

Because at Born Brown, we believe silence is violence. We're here to raise awareness and fight back!

Here's how you can join the fight:

  • Educate yourself. Learn what conversion therapy is and why it's harmful. 

  • Spread the word. Talk to your friends, family, and community about the dangers of conversion therapy.

  • Support the cause. Donate to organizations working to end conversion therapy.

  • Be an ally. Let LGBTQ+ youth know you see them, love them, and support their identities. 

Together, the Born Brown family can create a world where ALL youth feel safe being themselves. 

Check this out:

Let's lift each other up and actively fight for a world where we celebrate ALL identities.

Born Brown Strong,

The Born Brown Team
